Prior to colonization, the original people of this land we call Turtle Island, did not see people in a binary gender fashion. Rather, people were cherished for the roles they played and the contributions they made to the wellbeing of the nation. Those who were seen as different shared in the rich tradition of the Two-Spirit. Sadly, like many others, these traditions have become invisible under the blanket of colonization.
The purpose of the workshop is to take the participant on a journey from pre-contact to modern times, so as to develop a greater understanding of the reality of Two-spirit today.
This is an active workshop. Participants should wear comfortable clothing and footwear.
