From the Inside Flap
This edited collection examines the understanding of gay, lesbian, transgender, queer and Two-Spirit communities within indigenous society. Based on the reality that queer Indigenous people "experience multilayered oppression that profoundly impacts our safety, health, and survival," this book is at once an imagining and an invitation to the reader to join in the discussion of decolonizing queer Indigenous research and theory and, by doing so, to partake in collective resistance working toward positive change.
