This Pride Month, SURJ SF is collaborating with Bay Area American Indian Two Spirits, Golden Gate Mothers’ Group, and Our Family Coalition, to bring our first ever Two-Spirit Storytime to San Francisco.
Two-Spirit Elder L Frank (Tongva/Ajachmem/Rarámuri) will be opening for us and Ruth Villasenor (Chiricahua Apache/Mexican) will be sharing a 2S story with us. Drag Queen Landa Lakes (Chickasaw) will be reading 47,000 Beads and local authors Angel and Koja Adeyoha (Eastern band of Cherokee and Lakota) will be available to sign and talk about the book. We will be showing a 3 minute cartoon on what it means to be two-spirit as well.
We want to get this book into the hands of all the kids who come and to fund indigenous labor. If you are able, please donate here and put 2S in the instructions:
