Enter into a world of Indigenous Futurism. This is a story inspired by Mohawk teachings, allowing us to imagine worlds where colonialism never happened. We follow Kahente, an Indigenous youth, on his journey to the stars. After finding seven wampum belts from the constellation we call the Seven Dancers (Tsata Teienonniakhwa), he starts his journey to each of these worlds to discover his ancestors and star-beings. If successful, this path can lead him to Sky World (Karonhiakehson Ohontsa), the place of his people’s origins, and bring him a greater understanding of his past, present, and future. I Dream in Wampum is a dynamic, powerful journey where Indigenous people show a future of strength and celebration.
Let the journey begin…
