Indigenous Native Two Spirit Identity

Have you ever heard the term ‘Two Spirit’? Among those who have heard the term often describe it wrongly as the Native American term for transgender. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Many tribes had what they considered a gift to the tribe, the birth of a Native two spirit medicine person. These special intersex Natives embodied a pan-Indian third gender, who could identify with both male and female identities. The truth is, a two spirit gifted tribal member had more to do with spiritual good medicine, as they often possessed a seer gift, and very little to do with sexualization. A two spirit person doesn’t really fit into the LGBTQ expressions of sexualization, nor do they desire to have physical and surgical alterations. Our focus is primarily on the Spirit, and our identity role in tribal culture. Dani’el Garvin knows. He is a two spirit Miq’maq Native American. This book will help you understand what a two spirit truly is. Dani’el shares the heartbreak and rewards of his journey as a two spirit person and offers direction and hope to others who may be struggling with their sexual identity.
