Webinar: Highlighting Two-Spirit/LGBT Projects
June is LGBT Pride Month. Join us for our weekly webinar on Thursday, June 12 at 3pm EST to learn about ANA-funded projects working with Two-Spirit and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) people.
The indigenous peoples of North America have many cultural traditions that have often been misrepresented or suppressed through colonization. Many of these traditions and teachings have a significantly different perspective from those introduced by Western Europeans in regard to sex, gender, and sexuality. In the 21st century, one tradition that was nearly lost is the belief in Two-Spirit people. This webinar will provide an introduction to the historical, cultural, and health context for Two-Spirit individuals, families, and communities. It will also share effective networking, education, and mental health strategies for well-being.
