Abstract:

For centuries throughout America, both before and after the arrival of Europeans, gay and lesbian Indians were recognized as valued members of tribal communities. Combining male and female roles, gay Indians worked as mediators, artists, healers, and providers for their tribes. Living the Spirit brings together historical overviews, personal accounts, stories, and poetry that celebrate these traditional roles and the rich heritage of gay Indians, as well as contemporary writings that give voice to the lives of gay Indians today [from the back cover].
