In this workshop, we will explore the history of gender and sexual diversity on Turtle Island (now known as North America) pre-colonization, recognize the effects of colonization on Indigenous gender diversity historically and currently, and develop an appreciation for current Two-Spirit/Indigiqueer figures and movements. We will also identify strategies for accepting, supporting, and celebrating Indigiqueer LGBTQ+ (Two-Spirit) folks.
