Bay Area Two SpiritIndian Country Today, Dec 22, 2014

The fourth annual Bay Area American Indian Two-Spirit (BAAITS) Powwow, the world’s only public Two-Spirit pow wow, is set for Saturday, February 7, 2015.

“Two-Spirit” is a Native American term for people with both female and male energies. Two-Spirits may (or may not) also identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer. Two-Spirits often held—and many still hold— honored positions in their traditional Native American and First Nations communities. “Two-Spirit” is a pan-tribal term—it is rooted in the Anishnaabe term describing such individuals: “niizh manidoowag.” This translates literally as “two spirits.”
