2-Spirit is an umbrella term for Indigenous peoples that identify with the LGBTQ+ community. Although it is a contemporary term created in the 90’s, it acknowledges that diverse sexualities and gender roles exist within Indigenous traditions in North America.
This event highlighted Indigiqueer artists from across Turtle Island and abroad, it included craft activities including Indigenous beadwork and Togan Flower Garlands, a thumping set from DJ Bagowji, a performance by Cree artist and pop-icon Quanah Style, songs and dance from Anishinaabe Powwow Dancer and traditional hand drummer David White Deer Charette, and as well as VJ and host for the evening Corey-Sleeps-With-Bears.
