Some may ask what is Two Spirit? There are many definitions online as to what Two Spirit is, I personally prefer the definition provided by Urban Dictionary:
Two-spirit is a gender identity. If someone is two-spirited, their body simultaneously houses both a masculine spirit and a feminine spirit. This idea originated with Native Americans, and can also mean that they fulfill both gender roles.
But, what is gender identity anyway? Two Spirit is all of the above and more, yes it is about gender identity and gender roles, it is about how you identify yourself and how you integrate all of your gender characteristics into your life. It’s about ‘girls’ appreciating and maybe taking part in ‘guy’ things and ‘guys’ appreciating and perhaps taking part in ‘girl’ things. Its about single parents being the mother and the dad or the dad and the mother. Its about guys being a bit tender and girls being bit tough.
Really its simply about acceptance of difference and taking down walls, smashing gender stereotypes and being ourselves.
Two Spirit is in us all! This website celebrates and encourages us all to simply be ourselves, fly free and enjoy life, to embrace all of us no matter what natal gender we where born.
The site will build over time – in the meantime enjoy and why not answer the following question – Do you believe its a good thing to embrace traits from both genders
