Celebrating our Spirits
Celebrating Our Spirits is a day of presentations and discussions around Two-Spirit, Indigenous LGBTQ+ and Indigiqueer identities. Being indigenous, these people have to navigate through a world that imposes the gender binary in an environment contaminated by colonialism and Christian value systems which promote exclusion, violence and a life surrounded by homophobia and transphobia.
Tealey Ka'senni:saks Normandin, Scott Wabano, Annie Pullen Sansfaçon, Jo-Marie Einish & John Sylliboy, the guest speakers for this day, will talk about their personal experiences and the concrete needs of Indigenous communities. Their presence confirms Two-Spirit, Indigenous LGBTQ+ and Indigiqueer people’s resilience and the visible hope around a movement of revitalization of traditions that celebrate the divergence of spirits.
Celebrating Our Spirits is a collaboration between the Cercle Indigiqueer Circle, Quebec Native Women and Fierté Montréal.
