Two Spirit Org Denied By Their Own and the City of Edmonton!

{mosimage}The Two Spirit Circle of Edmonton Society has been overlooked, forgotten or just downright denied inclusion in the latest edition of “A Guide To Aboriginal Edmonton”. What motivated the omission of the fact of our existence and our contact information is bewildering given the fact that our President, Richard Jenkins, used to sit on the Edmonton Aboriginal Urban Affairs Committee (EAUAC) for close to two years as a very openly Two Spirit (gay) man and had many times taken the opportunity to speak very candidly about the Two Spirit Circle and the work it was doing. “People know of us in the city and seem to be very selective about what they choose to involve and include us in, which is little”, says Ed Lavallee, cultural advisor for the Circle.
