Two Spirits

An interview with Two Spirits director, Lydia Nibley

Quote:
Fred’s mother asked, “Why are people killed for being who they are?” It just doesn’t make sense that when LGBT and two-spirit people express who they are, they face bullying in schools, rejection by their families, and the institutional discrimination that makes life incredibly difficult. I’ve come to understand that when people express themselves fully they have important contributions to make—and that a range of gender and sexuality is a gift to the culture.

Pipeline Oil Spill Affecting Little Buffalo

In Little Buffalo, people are complaining of a strong sour gas smell, nausea, etc that started after the huge oil spill.  No one even bothered to tell them about it!  And predictably, the company is denying that this has anything to do with the spill...

kind of reminds me how people are sick and dying in the gulf who worked on clean up crews and BP is denying that it has anything to do with them.  "it's coincidence!"
