The Two-Spirit Papers includes paper records, visual materials, artifacts, and digital media from several different accessions. These records document a local Two-Spirit organization (American Indian Gays and Lesbians), as well as the personal experiences of GLBT activists from the Native American community. The Two-Spirits Papers includes manuscript, visual, and digital materials. Topical coverage is given over to general Two-Spirit issues, the representation of Native Americans in the national GLBT community, gender identity, HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment, and the organizational records of the American Indian Gay and Lesbian Center in Minneapolis, MN. Manuscript materials include event flyers, publications (full magazines, newsletters, and booklets, as well as clipped articles), correspondence (from private individuals, inmates, and organizations), fundraising materials, and posters. Visual materials include photos of fundraising events and several enclosures from different correspondents. Digital media includes several floppy disks. The artifacts within the collection are largely ceremonial and include packets of loose tobacco, sage, cedar needles, and a woven basket. Three folders contain relevant materials to the trans community and are marked with an asterisk (*) in the folder list below.
