Tuesday, November 12, 2013
5:00 PM-7:00 PM
Presented by Harlan Pruden and Sheldon Raymore of the Northeast Two-Spirit Society
Sex, Gender and Sexuality, Then and Now
The Indigenous peoples of North America have many cultural traditions that have often been misrepresented or suppressed through the colonization process. Many of these are significantly different perspectives about sex, gender and sexuality than those imported from Western Europe. This presentation will examine these traditions from a pre-contact and to a present day context.
The Spirit of the Drum Experiencing

This event is sponsored by Commuter and Transfer Student Engagement, the Student Center for Inclusion and Culture, Westphal College of Media Arts & Design, and the LGBTQA+ Faculty & Professional Staff Network. For more information, please contact Dr. Hancock firstname.lastname@example.org
