dc.description.abstract This project explores Indigenous Futurisms written by Indigenous women from North America in the early 21st century. The stories were analyzed as resistance literature to the historical violence resulting in the literal and literary invisibility of Indigenous women. Each story focuses on an Indigenous woman protagonist, reflecting the subjectivity of the author. The characters define themselves on their own terms and offer positive, transformative, multifaceted self-representations. The intent is for readers, specifically Indigenous women readers, to see these stories as mirrors that reflect empathy, connection, and empowerment. en_US
