Native Dancer - Virtual Powwows for Health

Excerpt from Water Cooler games

Water Cooler

Like many disadvantaged populations, Native Americans are particularly at risk for Type 2 adult-onset diabetes. The game addresses exercise through multi-user virtual pow-wows. The game is (smartly, I think) set up a regular event at scheduled times. Players learn about and participate in native dancing, outfits and regalia. Performances are judged based on how closely they conform to motion-tracked professionals.
