Montana Two Spirit & LGBTQ+ History

Montana Two Spirit and LGBTQ+ History with Adrian Jawort

Long before colonization deemed them an abomination, non-binary/trans people were highly respected within many Indigenous tribes across the Americas. Collectively referred to as two spirits, they were not only celebrated for their uniqueness but considered essential to ceremonies and tribes’ very spiritualties. Unfortunately, Trans people today more often live under a dark cloud of prejudice.

 

Adrian Jawort leads a conversation about what American society can learn from Indigenous peoples about acceptance and respect of two spirits people. Jawort talks about the history of two-spirit people in Montana and present-day two-spirit experiences in order to create a path forward for all LGBTQ2S folks.

 

Adrian L. Jawort is a Billings-based Northern Cheyenne journalist and fiction writer, and current political director and lobbyist for Indigenous Vote.
