Indigenous LGBTQQIA+ people have survived 526 years of European colonization and our resurgence involves working with First Nation, Inuit, and Metis political leadership and our LGBTQQIA+ allies.
Director Lorne Olson's film details the contemporary life of Two-Spirit people in Manitoba.
The term, Two-Spirit, was introduced at the third annual international LGBT Native American gathering in 1990. Elder Myra Laramee shared the name and it was quickly adopted as a spirit-name. Today, Indigenous LGBTQQIA+ and Two-Spirit are terms chosen by some Indigenous people to describe an aspect of their identity.
