Native American Heritage Month - "Two Spirits" Film Screening and Post-Viewing Discussion

Two Spirits, directed by Lydia Nibley, discusses a time in Native American culture when integrated genders was more commonplace. The Navajo believe that to maintain harmony, there must be a balanced interrelationship between the feminine and the masculine within the individual, in families, in the culture, and in the natural world. Two Spirits compares that time to the life and death of a boy who was also a girl, and explores the essentially spiritual nature of gender and sexuality. The film demonstrates how the Navajo are revitalizing two-spirit traditions and once again claiming their rightful place within their tribal communities.
