Nunaka from FableVision Studios

Camai! You walk through a beautiful forest, listening to the nearby stream, and settle by the campfire, while your grandfather and a bear await you by the waterfall. After fishing with your grandfather, you carefully cross the stream and start collecting berries for the bear. Your adventures in the game Nunaka have just begun.

Created with Chugachmiut, a non-profit that serves Native tribes in the Chugach region of Alaska, Nunaka is an early childhood mobile game that excites 3-5-year-olds about the Alaska Native Sugpiaq culture, teaches the Sugt’stun language, and targets key school readiness goals. The game recently won the Formal Learning (Elementary) award at the James Paul GEE! Learning Game Awards.

In the story-driven game, players take on the role of a Sugpiaq child living with their grandparents, Emaa and Apaa, in a fictionalized version of a community based on villages in the Chugach region. Players create an avatar and explore the village, completing activities and minigames, while collecting items and interacting with other residents, including human characters and animals from the region.

Nunaka is now available as a mobile app in the App Store and Google Play for phones and tablets. Nunaka from FableVision Studios is a Cool Tool Award Winner for “Best New Product or Service” as part of The EdTech Awards 2024 from EdTech Digest. Learn more
