Two-Spirit Grandmother Advocates to Eliminate Homophobia http://anishinabeknews.ca/2018/07/30/two-spirit-grandmother-advocates-to-eliminate-homophobia/ Teresa Sims, a Two-Spirit grandmother, is making it her mission to deliver the message that it’s time to eliminate homophobia and allow Two-Spirit people to reclaim their proper place in First Nations’ culture. L to R: Theresa Sims, Lori George, assistant director at Wulaawsuwiikaan Healing Lodge, Jason George, lodge program coordinator. “Two-Spirit people were accepted and even honoured in the traditions of First Nations, and they should not be afraid to come out and be part of Indigenous society today,” explained Sims. The concept of being Two-Spirit in that it is not the same as dominant cultural ideas of hetero-, homo-, or bi-sexuality. Two-Spirit people can “see and feel both sides”, but the idea is not all about a person’s sexuality. Two-Spirits can have any sexual orientation, she says, and the idea that these matters are only about sexual preference is not part of Indigenous culture.
