WINDOW ROCK, ARIZONA

In 2021, Diné Pride's theme is focused on honoring 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.

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.

There are countless socio-economic & educational disparities that impact our community. Diné Pride will reintroduce traditional knowledge & teachings that kept our LGBTQIA+ relatives safe & revered - the way our culture recognized at one point in history.

OUR  LEADERSHIP

LOGO2021_Circle.png

Long before the forced Christian removal of our children to boarding schools, or the Stonewall riots, the Civil Rights Movement, and the fight to recognize marriage equality - it was our Indigenous Nations that recognized and protected our existence as LGBTQIA+ family members since time immemorial. We must acknowledge our transgender women of color for their leadership through the hardest of times. Being gay, lesbian, trans, 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. Through their knowledge can we only remain resilient and compassionate. 

 

Navajo Nation Pride is fighting to reclaim traditional knowledge, advocating for resilient families, fighting for respect for our sovereignty & our right to be who we are.

This is a movement to define generations.
