Abstract:Through auto-ethnography, the intersection between family culture and a hegemonic culture of normalcy is explored. One sister’s investigation of disability, as manifested through shared family secrets, acts of resistance against the public stare, segregation and isolation, and notions of incompetence, unveil evidence of historical oppressive practices.
