July 12, 2021
SASKATOON — Ubisoft recently released a character into its video game Rainbow Six Siege with both Nakoda and Saskatchewan roots – codenamed Thunderbird.
“We wanted to create a character that would be very strong, resilient, that would be representing our Nakoda nation. Everything about her, her tattoos, everything was in discussion to represent Nakoda,” said Terrina Bellegarde one of three consultants on the character.
Thunderbird’s release in May was part of the “North Star” season of Siege. She is the first Canadian character added to the game in more than five years.
According to the character’s biography, 36-year-old Specialist Mina “Thunderbird” Sky was born in the Nakoda Territories of Saskatchewan.
