In this paper, we introduce the notion of a screen slant lightlike submanifold of an indefinite Kenmotsu manifold. We provide characterization theorem for existence of screen slant lightlike submanifold with examples. Also, we give an example of a minimal screen slant lightlike submanifold of $R_2^9$ and prove some characterization theorems.
