Cool! Lisa Charleyboy and New Fire walk about a cool new program in Toronto designed to help young indigenous women (aged 13-24) jump into the video game industry. Important since statistics show that in the gaming industry, only 41 developers out of nearly 6,500 indicated an indigenous identity. Only four of those 41 were women!

Take a listen below as CBC producer Acey Rowe drop in on a recent Indigicade session and chat with organizer Archer Pechawis and participants Meagan and Tara.
