Welcome

The eight Two-Spirit Teachings were conceived at the 28th Annual International Two-Spirit Gathering held at the Back to Batoche Festival Site north of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. A special meeting was held where participants contributed their understandings of the role and purpose of Indigneous LGBTQ/Two-Spirit people.
