You to Heteronormativity?

Part One ~ Untangling the Binary

February 15th 2023 | 6-8pm PST

We grow up in a world where the male-female binary is the norm. However, when applying a critical queer Indigenous lens in the context of the Coast Salish, one can be left wondering how much heteronormativity is traditional and how much has been imposed by colonizing processes. Moreover, in what ways can the word Two-Spirit challenge our understanding of the male-female binary? Answering these questions can help us revisit how history has informed current theory, policy, and practice.

Part Two ~ Decolonization, Reconciliation, and Equity

March 15th 2023 | 6-8pm PST

What do we mean when we use the word decolonize, especially when it comes to public health education and mental health promotion for/with Indigenous people. Reconciliation is an intergenerational process, but how do we include Two-Spirit people? Where can a queer Indigenous vision take our theory, policy, and practice? The way Two-Spirit people are treated by their communities and service providers can provide insight into just how well we’re achieving reconciliation.

 

Please note: Session replay will be available for 30 days from date of recording.
