"Two Spirits," Film and Discussion, Nov. 3

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

The film, Two Spirits (2009), followed by a discussion, will be held from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2015, in the Daniel J. Conoyer Social Sciences Building auditorium.

Two Spirits is about the life of a young man named Fred Martinez who lived on a reservation in Colorado and identified as a “Two Spirit” (in Native American tradition, a person who occupies at times the opposite gender identity and in the tribe is revered rather than shunned). The documentary covers the Two Spirit tradition, as well as Fred’s life – he was killed in a violent hate crime by one of his classmates when he was 16 years old.
