Native Americans’ use of Social Media to Celebrate Indigenous Culture

In the novel There There (2018), Cheyenne and Arapaho author Tommy Orange includes the character, Orvil Red Feather, who is a young Native American who turns to social media to learn more about powwow dancing. This project will analyze the use of social media, such as Youtube and TikTok, by Native American youth to connect with their culture and create awareness of their cultural practices.
