This article is a reflection on my journey as an Indigenous Amazigh woman. I employ autoethnographic stories to make meaning of my narrative. The stories I tell of my ethnic identity will hopefully contribute to a discussion about decolonization and Indigeneity, whereby I mean to regain my Indigenous self and make meaning of my own experiences and history as an Amazigh person, which requires that I engage in memory work to claim my Indigenous voice as an Amazigh. In adopting this framework, I center my Indigenous self. Indigenous Amazigh autoethnography can allow diverse Amazigh communities to engage in making meaning of their own experiences. The stories we tell are a source of agency and community, and engaging in this type of inquiry will set a stage for Amazigh people to gain their own agency and accountability for the stories they tell about themselves and in relation to their Amazigh communities.
