Greetings and welcome to alterNative Media ("aNm"), a Native American-owned small business. aNm's blog highlights our interaction with Indigenous culture and popular media (comic books, video games, digital media/art, etc.) as well as providing exciting information about Natives in the digital frontier.

While this is not EXACTLY what I had in mind when I talk about Indigenous people in 3D media, it certainly is cool...if only the author was Indigenous himself! (It is difficult to tell if this individual is Native, as neither the You Tube nor his website specify any tribal affinity...most times, this translates into "Non-Native.")
However, this media does showcase real Native people in culturally-specific garb. The holograms also serve to celebrate Indigenous people instead of exploit them...so much kudos for that.
Now all we need is to get a Native person trained to do holograms and we will be "set". Heh.
Check it out.
