AbstractThis paper offers a socio-spatial analysis of Native American normative geographies and Native American
woman's spatial positionality within these normative landscapes. The discussion in this study premises on the
notion that these normative geographies are ambivalent since they accord a marginalized spatial position to the
Native American woman. The study argues that the nomadic tribes brought the Asiatic socio-cultural patterns
that paved the way for Native Americans' compromised spatiality. The discussion offers a critique of the
ambivalence of the normative geographic structures in the pre-contact era. Hence, the study maintains that by
the pre-contact time, Native American nations have developed and expanded into different civilizations with
established socio-cultural structures and socio-spatial boundaries. During this period, Native American woman's
spatial predicament continued and her spatial suppression has become institutionalized.
