More on Native two-spirits

Exploring a spiritual history

New novel about a gay Navajo and his white lover examines gay identityThe history of gay identity on the North American continent is totally absent from the educational system of the United States, and until recent years, the travails of the American Indians have been reduced to the myths of the bloodthirsty Injun or the noble savage.

With “Two Spirits: A Story of Life With the Navajo,” gay authors Walter L. Williams and Toby Johnson deftly unveil the great histories of gay people as seen through the mythic and cultural expressions of the Navajo.
