Cheyenne Mihko Kihêw is a 2 Spirit/Indigiqueer powerhouse who is part of the incredible E2S - Edmonton 2 Spirit Society. She shares her personal story with us in what it means to be 2 Spirit and as an 'Inbetween'. There is a resurgence within the 2 Spirit community; however, the fight to have their seat at the table faces many obstacles. They share what those obstacles are in this conversation.
When discussing the recent news in regards to Canada and the Residential School system that caused unimaginable pain to the Indigenous community, Cheyenne talks about 'being born into grief'. The truth will take time to be told and it is on us to be available to listen and to be open to what needs to be heard.
In case you believe the conversation will be too heavy, there were 'technical difficulties' when Douglas' cat decided that a camera was not needed for the interview. A huge thank you to Cheyenne for your understanding when Bruce (the cat) decided to bring the conversation to a close (in his own way). :) The video has been somewhat edited to remove this happening; however, there are mentionings of it at the end.
