The Indigenous use of Facebook reflects to some degree the instruments of Indigenous identity confirmation and surveillance, which operate in the real world of Indigenous community networks. Of interest to this article is what Michel de Certeau calls ways of operating, that is, the uses made by consumers of various mechanisms for purposes removed from, or different to those intended by producers (de Certeau, 1984, pp. xi-xxiv) and the effects of these uses in maintaining vigilance or discipline on subjects who identify as Indigenous.
