How do you say watermelon?
AbstractThis paper discusses the relationships between contemporary indigenous games and those played historically on Turtle Island. With Sla’hal as an example, we look for ancestral philosophies informing old games that might be used today in development of new indigenous games of survivance and survivance games. Using indigenous pedagogies of Anishinaabe, Choctaw and Lushootseed speaking peoples, in addition to some of Vizenor’s theories, we modeled the content of this paper with playful formats to encourage readers to think about their own gaming practices. Beginning with story, we offer a bit of history, philosophy, visuals, a podcast transcript, and our system of Indigenous Game Tags to assist your creative understandings.
