Tony (Lakota & Chippewa-Cree) an Assistant Professor, Career Track, at WSU as well as a doctoral student in New York University’s department of Media, Culture, and Communication. His research is at the intersection of Indigenous studies and media studies. More particularly, he is interested in Indigenous game development and histories of computing & video games and their often-obfuscated entanglements with the logics of settler colonialism and racial capitalism. He has taught in South Korea, at the Northwest Indian College-Nisqually campus, The Evergreen State College, New York University, and Washington State University. While he has some video game industry experience as cultural consultant and writer, he prefers making his own little games. Stay tuned: his recent video game Wendigo World will be available to play via the “Shall Make, Shall Be: The Bill of Rights at Play” website.
