Queer Indigenous Communities: An introduction
Presented By Kurstie Bevelhymer-Rangel, LSW
1 CE- Meets Ethics Requirements
This training will aim to provide education on Indigenous Queer identities within the tribes native to what is now known as the United States. It will cover a brief history of how Indigenous people, communities, and tribes view LGB+, Trans, and Two-Spirit (2S) folx. This training will also provide a brief introduction for best practices when working with Queer Indigenous folx.
Native/Indigenous people have been colonized since the formation of what is now considered The United States of America. Due to forced cultural assimilation, many Native/Indigenous communities lost their identities and are victims to political, economic, and cultural structures prominent in the US that contribute to a rise in health-related problems, including mental health illnesses. To combat this, it is imperative to address the inequality and discrimination faced by Native/Indigenous people as this has been shown to be more effective than the standardized societal focus and emphasis on medication and traditional western therapy.
