Tribal educators and institutions of higher learning should design New Media Labs (NML) that will help them revitalize North American Indigenous identity via the production of video and audio documentaries. To help them decide whether they should take this action, this study employed a quantitative before-and-after matched pairs T-test survey. This study reported statistically significant motivational difference among Keetoowah tribal members who participated in the Indigenous revitalization video survey. It was important to consider literature that explained the generational trauma that has been caused by American assimilation policies and described how that experience was shared among many tribal members. The study examined the literature that explained how tribal educators and institutions of higher learning can effectively develop projects that promoted and empowered tribes to reclaim their unique cultural identities and exercised their rights of inherent sovereignty.
