June is Pride Month! 🌈✨ Gay, queer, trans, and two spirit folks have always been an important part of our communities. We support our kin and are proud of the work being done to support the safety and acceptance of people, no matter how they identify.

#Repost from @artnerdforever: Happy Pride Month to all my #2slgbtqia relatives and friends. I recently updated my Two Spirit flag design for 2024 and am proud to be a two spirit person! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

👉🏽Being a two spirit person is a gift and I’m so proud to be from a community that recognizes diversity of experience.

🏳️‍🌈The term “two spirit” is an Indigenous-specific Identity and an umbrella term that encapsulates many experiences. When I learned the term, it was like I finally knew who I was.

‼️Pre-colonial Indigenous existence includes many genders, not just two. It was the church that forced us into the binary, but before colonization our communities celebrated #indigiqueer people and their special gifts.

☝🏽Remember that the gender binary is a social construct, and not all cultures believe in these ideas. My culture makes room for many experiences of gender and doesn’t denigrate those who do not conform to the binaries of Christian ideologies.

Be PROUD of who you are, because your ancestors are!!! 🏳️‍🌈❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

Today, we’re celebrating all dads, uncles, grandpas, guardians, and father figures who inspire, nurture and guide us with love and wisdom. Join us in honoring this special day with artist Brandon Jacko (Anishinaabe/Wiikwemkoong). Known for his vibrant colorful Woodland Style of First Nations art, Brandon draws inspiration from the beauty of his culture to create works that promote Anishinaabe history and identity.

Artist statement:
“‘The Gift,’ is a special piece that conveys themes of joy and sacredness in the experience of fatherhood. While recognizing the journey isn't always easy, the piece emphasizes that the gift comes from the Creator and brings a profound sense of enlightenment and indescribable love.”

Happy Father's Day to all!

Twelve years ago today, immigrant youth made the biggest impact on immigration policy since the 1980s, winning a program called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival, or DACA.

But DACA recipients are facing a new threat of deportation, which would tear apart their families and communities. The future of DACA is in the hands of a court with a track record of anti-immigrant rulings.

We’re against separation of families. On this 12th anniversary of DACA, please sign on to call on the Biden Administration to strengthen and expand DACA: tinyurl.com/339xy8ry

We must use every opportunity to protect DACA recipients, undocumented youth, and immigrant communities.

Our Executive Director, Judith LeBlanc, recently teamed up with Greisa Martinez Rosas of @uwdaction to bring attention to violent legislation that harms our communities. 

“As directly impacted undocumented immigrants and Native people, we know we belong. We call these lands home. Our communities have deep roots that intertwine throughout time—some of us were born on these lands since time immemorial, and some of us moved here, forced to overcome state-led violence, genocide, climate disaster, shame, theft, and erasure.“

Only a century ago, Native peoples, the original inhabitants of these lands, were conferred U.S. citizenship. With this new status, we should have had the same power as other citizens to shape America, but it took another 40 years of relentless struggle for all Native peoples to secure the right to vote.

This hard-won victory allowed our grandparents and great-grandparents to finally have a voice in decisions that directly impact our Tribal homelands and communities. Yet, despite continued attacks on our right to vote, we have elected Native leaders to represent us in Congress, passed legislation to strengthen our communities, and influenced the outcome of a presidential election.

100 years later, we still hold the power to influence decisions to protect our lands and water and uphold our Tribal sovereignty.
