Mohawk songwriter Shawnee and Ojibwe-Cree Elder Ma-Nee Chacaby consider the history and role of two-spirit people.
Mohawk songwriter Shawnee is a member of the LGBTQ2S+ community and identifies as Two-Spirit. Recently, Shawnee won the 2020 CBC Searchlight prize. She is passionate about supporting LGBTQ2S+ youth through her inspirational music and performances, but her journey to self-discovery and acceptance has been hard won. As Shawnee has said, “I remember growing up feeling ashamed of feeling a deeper connection with girls. As a kid I was secretive about it. This became a very sad time for me.” In this episode, Shawnee sets out to build a two-spirit lodge with other community members to come to a better understanding of who she really is, and just how expansive her gifts truly are.
