This chapter unpacks Linda Hogan’s novel Solar Storms to understand the corporate production of the colonial spaces in which Indigenous peoples live and against which they tell their stories. It considers feminist theories of embodied trauma to argue that a mutually constitutive is violence committed against Indigenous lands, bodies, and memory by corporate-government polities to understand the role of that violence in reproducing colonialism.
