Michael Running Wolf

Co-Founder
Buffalo Tongue

Michael Running Wolf was raised in a rural village in Montana with intermittent water and electricity; naturally he now has a Masters of Science in Computer Science. Though he is a published poet, in Allison Hedge Coke’s anthology Sing, he is a computer nerd at heart. His lifelong goal is to pursue endangered indigenous language revitalization using Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality (AR/VR) technology. He was raised with a grandmother who only spoke his tribal language, Cheyenne, which like many other indigenous languages is near extinction. By leveraging his advanced degree and technical skills Michael hopes to strengthen the ecology of thought represented by indigenous languages through immersive technology.
