PRIDE YOUTH  LEADERSHIP

In response to requests from American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) youth, Western States Center partnered with the Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians, the Center for Native American Youth, and the Native Youth Leadership Alliance to develop a resource toolkit for and with young Native leaders.

Indigenizing Love is written to support Native youth, tribal communities, Two-Spirit and Native LGBTQIA+ collectives, community leaders, and partners who intend to better understand and support our Two-Spirit and LGBTQIA+ communities.

PRIDE  2021 theme

In 2021, Diné Pride will honor all Indigenous Womxn who continue to uplift communities, lead our movements & are the changemakers for our Sovereign Nations. Before Manifest Destiny, the forced removal of Native children to boarding schools, the Women's Suffrage Movement, & the Stonewall riots in New York City - our Indigenous Womxn have been at the forefront protecting sacred knowledge, passing forth our oral tradition, and raising resilient Sovereign Nations. We will continue to honor the role of our matriarchs for generations to come.

OUR  LEADERSHIP

ALRAY NELSON

Executive Director, Diné Pride

Founder, Diné Equality

"Long before the forced removal of our youth to Christian boarding schools, or the Stonewall riots, the Civil Rights Movement, and marriage equality being guaranteed by the Obergefell v. Hodges case - our Indigenous Nations recognized our existence as LGBTQIA+ warriors since time immemorial. We acknowledge our Trans women of color for their leadership through the hardest of times. Being gay, lesbian, transgender, bisexual, queer, and two-spirit meant you were a sacred human being that was revered through history by the people. 

 

Our Indigenous mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and sisters are recognized for their courage, uplifted for their leadership, must be protected against violence, and are honored as the matriarchs of our Sovereign Nations that carry our oral tradition. This is Pride for us. Through their sacred knowledge can we only remain resilient. 

 

That is what we are fighting to reclaim - resilient families, respect for our sovereignty, & our right to be who we are."
