Michael Running Wolf was raised in a rural village on the Northern Cheyenne Tribal Reservation called Birney. Birney had intermittent electricity, water, and did not get the telephone until he was a teenager. As a result, he naturally he pursued and received a Masters of Science in Computer Science. He recently gave up a stable career in Full Stack Web-development to focus upon his true passion: Endangered Indigenous Language Revitalization using Augmented and Virtual Reality software.

“I believe we are on the cusp of transformational change in indigenous culture and language revitalization through the use of advanced VR and AR technologies.” – Michael Running Wolf
