In 2024, Navajo Nation Pride believes in the sacred notion of Ayóó Ánóshní as the pillar of love that blesses our existence as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and two-spirit

Indigenous people in the United States.

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.

OUR  LEADERSHIP

Dr. Benino Watchman

Executive Director 

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.

Hózhó Dooleł represents the beauty within us.

We are unapologetic, fierce,

& resilient LGBTQIA+ warriors.
