This study identifies cultural identity influences shared by American Indian/Alaskan Native postsecondary students in online venues. Specifically, the problem is that educational leaders do not know what American Indian/Alaskan Natives consider a successful educational experience as aligned with their cultural identity. A narrative inquiry as provided in Internet blogs and YouTube video transcripts are examined through content analysis. By identifying factors that influence the social context, educators may be better positioned to improve educational attainment.
