As we celebrate Indigenous History Month alongside Pride Month, the Office of the Treaty Commissioner honours the diversity within our communities.

Pride allows us to hold up the courage and achievements of LGBTQ2S+ individuals and lift up their voices, experiences, and stories, fostering an environment of love, respect, and inclusivity.

The presence and contributions of Two-Spirit people are important to note during this month. The OTC encourages people to learn more about Two-Spirit identities. Out Saskatoon defines Two-Spirit as a “term that exists as an English placeholder as Indigenous communities uncover and reclaim the terms for gender and sexual diversity within their Indigenous languages. The term can be used by Indigenous people who are gender and/or sexually diverse.” (Read more here)

By learning more about Two-Spirit identities, we increase our understanding of gender diversity and challenge societal norms. We need to come together as a community Indigenous and non-Indigenous to create spaces where everyone feels seen, heard, and valued.

By celebrating both Indigenous History Month and Pride means we together stand against hatred, challenge discrimination, and stop prejudice and intolerance.

In the spirit of Truth and Reconciliation through Treaty Implementation, take time to learn about Two-Spirit individuals and how to be an ally
