dc.description.abstractIndigenous creative non-fiction. This paper uses personal experience to create a living example of Indigenous trauma for the reader. I aim to create a hybrid model of understanding the intergenerational trans/historical traumas of Indigenous peoples by drawing on academic concepts such as Marianne Hirsch's "postmemory," as well as N. Scott Momaday's creative work on "blood memory." Using Daniel David Moses's play Almighty Voice and His Wife, I argue that Indigenous theatre can create a communal space that aids in the healing of our communities. Throughout the paper I use the personal voice to explain my own experiences of Indigenous trauma. Moses's play helped me to experience my own "blood memory" which connected me to my grandmother and my mother in ways I had been unable to comprehend and articulate before having seen it.en_US
