"Two Spirits," Film and Discussion

11:30 a.m. Nov. 3, 2015
SSB Auditorium


Film description from

"Joey Criddle is a Two Spirit man fighting with other LGBTQ Native Americans to reclaim the place of honor that many Two Spirits once held prior to colonization. The film follows Joey as he leads parallel lives – one as a co-director of the Two Spirit Society of Denver and the other as a father attending the Mississippi wedding of his Pentecostal son. Joey's words bridge the gap between the closeted man he was in Mississippi and the Two Spirit activist he is today." (Plot summary written by Ruth Fertig, director)
