Digital Natives

Some of the most thrilling innovations and ideas are happening at the intersection of Indigenous worldviews and digital technologies. In this groundbreaking panel, we celebrate Native Americans in tech. Join us for a fascinating discussion to learn first-hand how Native youth are using digital tools to tell their stories, Native tech professionals are working to transform the industry from the inside, and Native culture-bearers are using tech solutions to positively impact their communities and beyond. With: Erica Persons (Miwok) of AICRC Oakland; Brisa Yepez (Hopland Pomo) of CIMCC; Danielle Forward (Pomo) of Facebook; and Ishmael Hope (Tlingit/Inupiaq), Storyteller, writer and consultant of the multi award-winning video game, Never Alone.
