The article focuses on the strategies of inscribing difference within the feminist discourse in the texts of three contemporary indigenous writers, Jackie Huggins' 'Sistergirl' (1998), Lee Maracle's 'I Am Woman' (1996) and Paula Gunn Allen's 'The Sacred Hoop' (1986). The authoress argues that these texts, by communicating perspectives on Indigenous women's identities, representations, and their common struggles in the 20th century, help to deconstruct the universalist and homogeneous category of woman, developed by the second-wave first-world mainstream feminism. In their engagement in multi-generic, experiential and subjective writing, such representations offer a significant alternative to the mainstream imaginary of female indigeneity.
