Two Spirit Awareness Week Launches with Flag Raising

On March 18, 2024 at 11:00am Community Members and visitors gathered at the bridge in Frenchman’s Head for the raising of the Two-Spirit Flag in honour of Two-Spirit Awareness Week.

Two-Spirit Awareness Week is a time dedicated to raising awareness about and celebrating the experiences, identities, and contributions of Two-Spirit individuals within Indigenous communities. It’s an opportunity to honor the diverse identities and cultures of Two-Spirit people, while also advocating for their rights and visibility. The week often includes educational events, discussions, and cultural activities aimed at promoting understanding and acceptance.
