"In many of our cultures before the arrival of Europeans to North America, “Two-Spirited” referred to an ancient teaching.

It is told that women engaged in tribal warfare and married other women as there were men married other men. These individuals were looked upon as a third gender in many cases and in almost all cultures they were honoured and revered.
