Two-Spirit & Indigenous Queer Studies

Getting Started

Two-spirit and Indigenous Queer Studies is an interdisciplinary field grounded in the languages, histories, geographies, and contemporary experiences of Indigenous peoples.Two-spirit (also sometimes two spirit or two spirited) in a pan-Indigenous term coined in 1990 in Winnipeg specifically to distinguish the experiences of Indigenous people from non-Indigenous people. Two-spirit studies may (or may not) intersect with critical approaches, such as decolonization and intersectional feminist studies.
