Abstract: The aim of this research is to explore the lives of Aboriginal women as it is reflected in an Australian novel entitled My Place. This novel is an autobiographical novel written by an Australian author, Sally Morgan. How the Aboriginal women struggled to search for their identity, how they were treated by colonialists, and how they were driven off from their homeland, are described in the analysis. This is a descriptive qualitative study done through library research. The approach used is a feminist approach which is underpinned by postcolonial theory stated by Edward Said and Gayatri Spivak. The result shows that this research vividly uncover a clear picture of the life of Aboriginal women from three generations who experienced double colonization as the impact of European settlement in Australia.
