Meagan Byrne is a Métis game designer and the co-founder of Achimostawinan Games, a video game company dedicated to developing Indigenous games for an Indigenous audience. She is also Digital and Interactive Co-ordinator with imagineNATIVE, the world's largest Indigenous film and media arts festival.
