This thesis consists of a Young Adult novel titled The Disappearance of Ember Crow and an associated exegesis. The novel is a work of 'Indigenous Futurisms', a term coined by Anishinaabe academic, Grace Dillon to describe a form of storytelling whereby Indigenous peoples use speculative fiction to challenge colonial stereotypes and imagine Indigenous futures. The novel centres on a female Indigenous protagonist, who draws on her lndigeneity to lead her people to victory against an oppressive government. The exegesis explores Indigenous standpoint theory and the complexities of telling stories from an Indigenous standpoint in a colonised world.
