The content team was made up of Leanne Campbell (Manager/Curator, Coeur d’Alene Tribe Historic Preservation Program, and project Co-Pi), Rodney Frey (Professor of Ethnography, University of Idaho, and project Co-Pi), CarylDene Swan (Hndesnet Historical Testimony, Coeur d’Alene Tribe Historic Preservation Program), Michelle Clark (Coeur d’Alene Tribe Language Program), Audra Vincent (Manager, Coeur d’Alene Tribe Language Program), and the elders of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe, of the past and today.

The original inception and guidance for this project came from Alfred Nomee (Director of Natural Resources and Tribal Council member), Quanah Matheson (Director of Cultural Resources), Leanne Campbell (Cultural Resources), Tiffany Allgood (Director of Environmental Programs), Steven Daley-Laursen (UI Natural Resources) and Rodney Frey (UI Ethnography). 

The voices heard in the 3-D Landscape were provided by Michelle Clark, James LaSarte-Whistocken, Joey Lenoir, Cheffrey Sailto, Elsie Wilson, Kris Roby, Susan Cleveley and Brian Cleveley.  The voice heard on the web pages was provided by Audra Vincent.

The "virtual world wizard" was Brian Cleveley (Senior Instructor, Virtual Technology & Design program, University of Idaho).

From the University of Idaho's Northwest Knowledge Network were Jeremy Kenyon (research and metadata librarian, and project Co-Pi), Greg Goldberg (Partnership Manager), Marisa Guarinello (environmental data manager), David Vollmer (web application developer), and Steven Daley-Laursen (Professor of Natural Resources, providing administrative oversight for this project).

For current data on climate change projections in the inland Northwest we are indebted to John Abatzoglou (Associate Professor of Geography, University of Idaho).

For their insights and expertise in developing the legal protocol for this project were Casey Inge (attorney for the University of Idaho) and Tyrel Stevenson (attorney for the Coeur d'Alene Tribe).

We also want to acknowledge the ground breaking work, Never Alone, developed by the Iñupiaq of Alaska, bringing Indigenous storytelling and culture to a world-audience through this gaming experience.

As with the traditional ending to any Schitsu'umsh story, and now we say "the end of the trail," tsi'łhnkhukhwatpalqs, (literally, "there, the trail ends").  And you might respond by saying, lim, thank you.
