Indigenous and Queer: Two Spirit Identity in Native America
November 11, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Two Spirit people have been found in over 130 Native American tribes. They have traditionally taken the role of ceremonial leader, healer, medicine person, giver of names, and lore keeper, among others. Their importance comes from the belief that they have two spirits–masculine and feminine–which grant them greater power and understanding than most. In this event, we will explore the intersection of indigenous and queer identities and the historical, religious, and political importance of Two Spirit people in Native America. This event of part of Native American Heritage Month.
Co-sponsored with QPOC (Queer People of Color) and Four Directions.
