In Canada artists, activists and academics from around the world are debating what the future holds for indigenous people.

It's the third Symposium on the Future Imaginary - but the first time the public's been allowed in to listen to the conversations and take part.

This year's event in Winnipeg includes a screening of the film InDigiNous Aotearoa: Virtual Histories, Augmented Futures.

Lynn Freeman speaks to Wellington artist Suzanne Tamaki on the phone from Winnipeg, Canada, where she's taking place in the indigenous art forum - in particular about her new app.
