Quotes[edit | edit source]

« In order for our Native communities to heal, we need to acknowledge and honor the gender diversity within our Native peoples. Everyone is entitled to their happiness and shouldn't be afraid to express who they are or who they love. Now this sounds like a fictional utopia. But I just hope everyone will be able to be prideful in who they are and not have to hide any elements of their identity.[2] »
