In this paper I refer to three Afro-indigenous women’s biographies. Based on fragments of narrative interviews, I will focus on how these women handle the tensions inherent to this questioning. Which psycho-emotional body language do they develop to answer the complex power relations? Creativity is needed and decides about how intersections of indigeneity, blackness, gender and sexuality are articulated explicitly and implicitly. Theoretically the analysis is nurtured by queer feminist and de/postcolonial approaches. The presentation is part of my doctoral thesis in advanced progress on subjectivities and social imaginaries of Afro-descendent and indigenous bribri women in Costa Rica that I am writing at the University of Costa Rica, in the Doctoral Program ‘Estudios de la Sociedad y la Cultura’.
