Our Worlds is going to be at SXSW Edu!

Our PanelPicker proposal for SXSW Edu was chosen from among over 800 entries to be a part of the panel lineup at SXSW Edu 2022! Titled, "Native American Narratives and Extended Reality," Our Worlds' Kilma Lattin (Pala Band of Mission Indians, Cupeño) will guide a panel discussion with 3 important voices in education in San Diego and how extended reality can provide new tools for traditional storytelling craft to preserve culture, help reclaim historical narratives, and advance education.

Read more about it on the SXSW Edu program announcement here. It's an honor to be able to represent.

Dr. Stanley Rodriguez (Iipay Nation of Santa Ysabel) is an esteemed educator and highly-respected elder and community builder generously sharing his wealth of knowledge about Kumeyaay culture, history, and language with the people of San Diego.
