Abstract and Keywords

Warning! Contains a huge amount of rapidly evolving information and links to digital data about American Indian Communities in the twenty-first century, challenges to their indigenous identity, traditional tribal land base, reserved resources in treaties with the United States government, and the contemporary realities facing Native people. From rapidly growing casino revenues and reliance on extensively growing infrastructures, tribes function within a modern context that includes modem opportunities or owning businesses and competing in both local and national politics. Tribal influence continues to grow as tribes became sophisticated in their everyday dealings, using modern digital tools while regrowing their communities and land base, maintaining their languages and reigniting their culture and spiritual values rooted in respect for the earth.

Keywords: tribes, reservation, indigenous, Indian, gaming, National Indian Gaming Association, aboriginal, powwow, #idlenomore, reserve
