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.
