"Assassin's Creed 3" Talk at NSU

Exciting news..!

On Tuesday, April 9, 2013, I and several other panelists will be on-hand at Northeastern State University, University Center in Tahlequah, OK to discuss the portrayal of Native American characters in both pop culture and Assassin's Creed III - which includes Indigenous characters in its story / gameplay.

Cherokee Artist (...and fellow INC Universe comic book creator...), Roy Boney, will server as moderator for this event.

Here is some additional info on AS3's Native American characters from Elizabeth Aileen LaPensée's instructional video.

The 41st Annual Symposium on the American Indian is entitled, "Technology Future, Technology Past: A Woven Link" April 10-13, 2013. Here is some info from the official Symposium website:
The theme for the 41st Annual Symposium on the American Indian, "Technology Future, Technology Past: A Woven Link." Indigenous societies have endured as technological innovations have effected massive cultural change. The spiritual paths taken are interwoven as living links between the past and the future. Like the ancestral oak, the branches that reach out into new space are nurtured by the seasonal life within its circuitry and secured by the deeply woven roots that give it strength.
Here is our panel discussion info:
