Session Description:

We consider the ways Indigenous women writers articulate the epidemic of patriarchal colonial violence and femicide Native women experience. How do these writers imagine decolonization and healing? These literatures have a direct correlation to Native communities and to readers who may not appreciate the complexities of Native life and struggles for survival.


Subjects:

  • General Literature – Cultural Studies, Folklore, and Popular Culture

  • American Literature – General

  • American Literature – Twentieth Century
