Announcing the first #Two-Spirit Tuesdays of 2016. Two-Spirit Webinar on March 29, 2016 at 1:00–2:30 p.m. EDT.
Sharing Wisdom and Experiences:
Parents of Indigenous Two-Spirit Youth

Join us for a panel discussion featuring parents of Indigenous Two-Spirit youth. The broader Two-Spirit population has been marginalized and isolated from communities and resources, and we now understand that parents of Two-Spirits often experience similar issues of seclusion.
During this discussion, participants will hear directly from parents about personal struggles, challenges, successes, and triumphs supporting Two-Spirit children. Panelists will propose insight and recommendations for tribal communities, families, service providers, and allies to enhance support for Two-Spirit health and wellness.
