What does it mean to be “Two Spirit?”
Walking in the land of our ancestors,
Walking along with our hearts open,
Walking close to the Creator,
Walking with passion,
yet hiding who we are.
Today I go to a powwow,
wishing in my heart
to be a Switch Dancer;
Eating frybread and laughing
with my people.
Deep in my heart,
I want to walk hand in hand
with my love,
as we sing on the powwow trail,
I want my love sitting behind me,
as I sing the songs of my elders and honor our ancestors.
Two Spirit is who I am.
I pick and choose which of my
people to tell.
