Program Description


To honour Pride month, we will be highlighting resources each Friday in June that are available for continued learning! This week, we hope you'll learn about Two-Spirit Pride resources.


  • According to the Canadian Encyclopedia, the term Two-Spirit, "a translation of the Anishinaabemowin term niizh manidoowag, refers to a person who embodies both a masculine and feminine spirit. Activist Albert McLeod developed the term in 1990 to broadly reference Indigenous peoples in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) community. Two-spirit is used by some Indigenous peoples to describe their gender, sexual and spiritual identity (2021).
