This book has analyses the decolonizing writing of four of the most prominent contemporary First Nations or Native women writers in Canada, Maria Campbell, Jeannette C. Armstrong, Lee Maracle, and Beatrice Culleton Mosionier. It examines the subversive potential of the self-reflexivity, hybridity of form and genre, mimicry and parody by deploying of relevant contemporary literary theories of post colonialism, feminism, post structuralism and theories from within the cultures. It also looks at the importance of the theorizing of the First Nations writers and critics themselves by alerting the researchers about the inappropriate application and the inadequacy of literary theories to understand these un(der)represented and un(der) appreciated corpus of Canadian First Nations Literature. The book appropriately situates the concepts such as Hertha D.Wong’s “communobiography” and Mikhail Bakhtin’s “novelisation” only to prove at the end that these hybrid form of new writing is a counter discourse to the genre of Western form of autobiographies elsewhere in the globe.
