“Red Rising Magazine Issue 7: Two-Spirit is is about uplifting Two-Spirit voices and their creative expression to spark dialogue on why we need to decolonize the way we value gender and sexuality within our communities. Two-spirited people are the most marginalized in our communities due to the ongoing colonialism and assimilation that has resulted in gender and sexual-based violence, systemic oppression, and current suicide crisis on-reserve. Red Rising Collective members acknowledge the beauty, value and resistance of our two-spirited relatives, as they are impacted in many ways by both Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. As we embark on our collective journey of decolonization, we must honour two-spirited people for all their gifts Creator has given them.”

North Meets South: Truth, Healing, and Relations-Building is a program offered by Community Service-Learning that provides U of M students with monthly excursions, events and intercultural workshops to learn about our community.
