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

CIRCLE_LOGO2021.png
Alray Nelson

Executive Director & Co-Founder

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.

 

Being gay, lesbian, trans, bisexual, queer, and two-spirit meant you were a sacred human being that was revered through history by the people. Navajo Nation Pride is reclaiming our traditional knowledge and is advocating for resilient families and our right to be who we are.

 

This year, during this pandemic we say boldly that we are alive and we are proud to live in the sacredness our ancestors blessed us with

We are a movement to define generations.
