niʕáy̓p kʷu aláʔ – We Have Always Been Here

HOSTED BY: National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center

Dr. Percy Lezard engaged in an intersectional analysis of Indigeneity and gender diversity in the context of gender-based violence. They illustrated the rich history and continued resilience and teachings of 2 Spirit people in Indigenous communities. They also identified the historical and contemporary colonial practices that violently impose heteronormativity and cisnormativity upon Indigenous communities with implications for gender-based violence. Specifically, Dr. Lezard shared findings and recommendations for a reimagined future from the MMIWG2SLGBTQQIA+ National Action Plan which they co-authored including calls for inclusion to service providers and implications for violence prevention programs.
