United Sugpiaq Alutiiq (USA) Video Game: Preserving Traditional Knowledge, Culture, and Language
Hall, Leslie D.; Sanderville, James Mountain Chief
Educational Technology, v49 n6 p20-24 Nov-Dec 2009
Video games are explored as a means of reviving dying indigenous languages. The design and production of the place-based United Sugpiaq Alutiiq (USA) video game prototype involved work across generations and across cultures. The video game is one part of a proposed digital environment where Sugcestun speakers in traditional Alaskan villages could meet with those in the Sugpiaq Alutiiq diaspora to learn their language, culture, and traditional knowledge from the Elders and one another.
