Native Women: Decolonization and Transcendence of Identity

Angela Marie Jaime


This article exposes the experiences of two Native women describing their acts of resistance against, and questioning, of the establishments in which they work. The Native women in this article redefine themselves outside of the dominant society’s socialization, and, especially, the boundaries of the institutions to which they belong. Through this redefinition, it becomes clear that the women have begun to decolonize the oppressive borders with which society and academia have tried to surround them. These Native women have defined the concept of transcending identities.
