the efniks cover story for november, elevating two-spirit voices and conversations around indigenous experiences during native american heritage month


The editor’s note

Excerpt: “Every single day that a Two-Spirit exists, they are enduring and resisting against colonialism and bigotry. Any time that a Two-Spirit makes themselves visible, it is a blessing, not just for themselves and their progress, but a seed of hope for the Seventh Generation. It is impossible for anyone to write that Two-Spirit authors do not exist. It would be a lie to say that Two-Spirits are not interested in writing. Two-Spirits are out here, doing the damn thing!”
