One Nation Two Spirits ... Our Native American Brothers & Sisiters

One segment of the LGBT community which is overlooked, most likely not even thought of, are our Native American brothers and sisters.

I became aware of Two Spirits about a year ago when adding categories to my link blog LGBT Rainbow Links.

There Must Be Something In Alaskan Water

How else can you explain the latest Palin fiasco ?

I mean, lady you can't be like some bored housewife (sorry ladies) who decides to drop one project to start another while the family is starving and the clothes aren't washed.
