Elizabeth Lameman (née Dillon) is an Irish, Anishinaabe, and Métis writer who looks at indigenous representations in video games and other digital media. She is also the writer and co-creator of The West Was Lost, an online steampunk comic that was featured prominently at the imagineNATIVE 2010 Film and Media Arts Festival.

Here's a short film she's made about Native characters in console games, from the still-unbelievable Custer's Revenge (Atari 2600, 1982) to more enlightened fare such as Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath (XBox, 2005) and Red Dead Redemption (Playstation 3 and XBox 360, 2010).
