Templeton Campus Center, Council Chambers
Join us for the screening of “Two Spirits,” an award-winning documentary that explores the cultural context behind the tragic and senseless murder of Fred Martinez. Fred was part of an honored Navajo tradition - the ‘nadleeh’, or ‘two-spirit,’ who possess a balance of masculine and feminine traits. Through telling Fred’s story, Nibley reminds us of the values that America’s indigenous peoples have long embraced. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion.
Co-sponsored by the Two Spirit Society, Indigenous Ways of Knowing (IWOK), and the Office of Multicultural Affairs.
