My session firstly goes over my background as an Indigenous person and my experiences, how lucky I was to have been taught culture and how I grew up with it.  I also talk about what advice I have been given when approaching Indigenous community about culture. I start to go into detail about the processes I have been using, with the example of working in my first studio DragonBear Studios and how I have navigated getting consultations with other key Indigenous community members.  After covering some of my working examples I then give the audience an almost step by step on how to approach and go about performing consultations from my perspective as an Indigenous person. Next I move onto why I think it is so important to have Indigenous culture represented in video games and the kind of impact that can have on both Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.  I also quickly touch on a game that has been a major inspiration for me as an example how it can impact people in a positive way.  Towards the end of my talk I discuss the positive impact that including Indigenous culture in video games can have.
