Skawennati ‘s early adoption of cyberspace as both a location and a medium for her practice has led to groundbreaking projects such as CyberPowWow, an early on-line gallery and mixed-reality event, and TimeTraveller™, an Indigenous futurist machinima series. From her perspective as an urban Mohawk woman and as a cyberpunk avatar, she will present an overview of her practice, starting with her origin story and concluding with her most recent work.
