L. NESTRICIA MARY, Dr.A.Roselin Mary
Indigenous Existentialism, Psychoanalytical, Postcolonial Trauma, Victim Roles.
This research paper focuses on the various features of indigenous existentialism presented in Clements's avant-garde play The Edward Curtis Project: A Modern Picture Story. Angeline, a Dene/Russian is the protagonist of the play who is in an intense dilemma about the purpose of her existence on earth. Indigenous people in general are identified, categorized, defined, and redefined by the White settlers. This paper gives the readers a psychoanalytical approach by carefully exposing the postcolonial trauma experienced by indigenous people. Indigenous existentialism paves way for a critical understanding of the loss of indigenous individuality and freedom as they were forced to play their victim roles in their land. This research paper sheds light on the terrible psychological trauma of the indigenous people as portrayed in the play.
