Two Spirits, One Journey
"Let's get off the rez."
"I told you I'm not going anywhere."
"How do you think it makes me feel, you hanging out with all those rez rats, hanging out with your bully friends?"
Byron Chief-Moon: Grey Horse Rider
In this engrossing memoir, Philip Szporer and Marlene Millar take us through the multiple identities of a Native man known to his fellow Canadians as a feature film/TV star; to the dance community as the practitioner of a unique blend of Native and Western idioms; to his male life-partner as the co-father of a brood of three adopted kids; and to his birth-family as an untamed spirit who has carved out a star's role in the white man's world.
Deb-we-win Ge-am-aan, Our Place in the Circle
Lorne Olson takes us on his journey to discover the meaning of his being a "two-spirited person," the traditional Native term for persons who in the modern world have been taught to identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or simply queer.
