In 2000, the Montana Human Rights Network issued its groundbreaking report Drumming Up Resentment: The Anti-Indian Movement in Montana. The report provided the first in-depth analysis of the movement, groups, and activists seeking to eradicate American Indian sovereignty and treaty rights in the state. The Human Rights Network provided the following definition of the anti-Indian movement in Drumming Up Resentment:

“…a systematic effort to deny legally-established rights to a group of people who are identified on the basis of their shared culture, history, religion, and tradition. This makes it racist by definition.”
