Healing Footsteps:
Digital Stories from Two-Spirit/LGBTQ People

The National Resource Center for Permanency and Family Connections and the National Resource Center for Tribes partnered with the Two-Spirit community in Minneapolis, Minnesota to develop these digital stories. These digital stories were created by Lenny, Jason, and Joseph -- Two-Spirit people whose lives were impacted by the child welfare system. The term Two Spirit is a universal Native American concept that relates to gender identity and sexual orientation. Generally, the term Two Spirit means that the individual’s body houses both a masculine and a feminine spirit. Different Tribes have different definitions of what it means to be Two Spirit.
