An old battle is being transformed into a virtual reality project for the ages. The Battle of the Belly River took place in 1870 between the Blackfoot and Cree nations in what is now the Oldman River in Lethbridge. As BCN’s Micah Quinn explains, this project is a partnership between four local organizations to document the history of the battle from a Blackfoot perspective and turn it into a Virtual Reality experience.
After graduating from Mount Royal University in Calgary with a Broadcasting Diploma, Micah made the trek down to Lethbridge to work for Bridge City News. He has previously worked at City TV Calgary on the Breakfast Television morning show. He looks forward to connecting with this community, and reaching a new audience. Micah has a passion for interviewing and finding out why people think the way they do. You’ll often find him pursuing local feature stories and hard news.
