Abstract

Geographers emphasize that spatiality should not be rooted in objective space but in human-made space, which includes place and locale, and the analysis of spatiality is closely intertwined with social analysis and vice versa. With Tim Cresswell's theorization of transgression and out-of-placelness, this study delimits Diane Glancy’s Reason for Crows to explore red women’s spatiality and how they get placement in American spatial boundaries. Glancy employs sensory experiences within Indigenous American space as a tangible technique to combat the feeling of displacement. These audiovisual and neurological experiences assist Glancy’sindigeneity in locating red women within Indigenous American textual space. This analysis of red women’s social space in Indigenous American normative geographies nuances the Indigenous American class, ethnicity and gender, which are embedded in places, regions and landscapes. This study concludes how Indigenous American normative geographies, women's writings and socio-spatial paradigms are controlled by American patriarchal norms. To challenge red women’s spatial marginalization and discrimination in the Euro-American text/ context, the red women do not conform to the patriarchal and Eurocentric norms of America. They disrupt the American patriarchal orientation and strive to connect with transgression and develop a sense of placement concerning various Indigenous American landscapes.
