Walking with Tribal Youth on Their Sacred Journey–Embarking on a Journey: Where Have We Been?
June 5 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
In recognition of Pride Month, the CoE LGBTQ+ BHE and the National American Indian and Alaska Native MHTTC will be hosting a special four-part webinar series on supporting Native LGBTQ+ and Two-Spirit youth! Join us every week in June to learn about the historical context of colonization that impacts Native youth, discover what tools and resources are available, gain strategies for supporting youth and their families, and hear from a lived experience panel.
Each session will begin and end with a breathing exercise and acknowledgment of attendees tending to their own spirit. Attendees are encouraged to attend all four sessions to embark upon this journey of learning together.
This webinar is Part 1 of a 4-Part Pride Month series: Walking with Tribal Youth on Their Sacred Journey. This session will provide foundational knowledge that will prepare participants for their learning over the four-week series. Presenters will discuss historical context and the impacts of colonization on Two-Spirit people. Prior to colonization, Two-Spirit young people coming out were celebrated, and they played important roles in Native communities. With colonization came harmful attitudes and views of Two-Spirit people. Differences in terminology between western terms and those used in various tribal communities will also be addressed. The session will begin and end with a breathing exercise and acknowledgment of attendees tending to their own spirit. Attendees are encouraged to attend all four sessions to embark upon this journey of learning together.
