7 Generation Games is dedicated to making math easier, more fun & more challenging and they do so by using Indigenous Culture & teachings. There team of community members & Elders from Spirit Lake Reservation in North Dakota guide their process in sharing their stories, their knowledge & understanding & the game designers take over and do the rest.
