You can still play The Oregon Trail on Apple Arcade, but the modern version of this iconic educational game has gotten an upgrade as part of an effort to more accurately depict the times, and the people along the trail – Native Americans in particular.
This story comes to us from reporter Anna King who first reported this story for Northwest News Network. You can read and hear her story here.
Music in this episode was by Kevin MacLeod. NW NERD's theme music is by The Hoot Hoots.
