App co-founder Kilma Lattin said:
SAN DIEGO — Have you ever considered the Native American land you stand on?
With a newly launched app based in San Diego our worldusers are immersed in virtual reality and travel back thousands of years to explore the lands and cultures of the tribes.
Once you’ve downloaded the Our Worlds app, point your phone at La Jolla Cove and you’ll see it’s Kumeyaay Land.
“It works anywhere in the world and all tribes are represented,” says Catherine Eng.
Eng and Kilma Lattin developed the Our Worlds app in San Diego. Users can explore Native American lands and learn about the culture through virtual reality, holograms, and 3D augmented reality like being inside a native boat.
Once you identify an indigenous territory, you can tap on phrases in your native language.
“We have the ability to put indigenous languages back in their place,” said Eng.
Hear stories from community and cultural leaders, doctors, tribal chiefs, elders, and musicians who have worked with app developers.
“There are elders, and they obviously have an incredible wealth of knowledge. said Eng.
A mobile-based, geolocated, immersive reality app that connects people with their rich tribal histories.
“With Our Worlds, you can experience Native American culture outdoors from anywhere in Hawaii, Cove Park, Oceanside, Ocean Beach, Mission Valley, or San Diego (and the world),” said Latin.
San Diego County has the largest number of Native American tribes in the United States, according to SANDAG, but the app caters to all cultures around the world.
“The community is not just for Native Americans. Everyone is from somewhere,” Latin said.
Our Worlds is an award-winning educational technology app that won South by Southwest Launch. competition this year.
“We’re looking at thousands of stories,” says Eng.
A rich tribal story told on every square mile.
“Using these new technologies is a great way to take a holistic view of culture. It’s proving that you can get it,” Latin said.
The app is currently available for iOS and will eventually be available for Android as well.
