Madeline is leading a project with funding from Yale School of Medicine to create a virtual reality video game. The video game will be an immersive walk-through of my tribal homelands in Northern Michigan near the Great Lakes, intended to increase identity connection for Indigenous youth and mental health through cultural security. The walk-through will include game elements and overlaid stories by elders from my tribe about sacred stories of the land. This is the first time a VR project is being used for Indigenous mental health in the United States at this level.
