Powwow Celebrates 10th Anniversary, Feb. 2-6

"Two-Spirit” is the Native American term for people with both female and male energies. They may or may not identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, or queer. They often hold honored positions in their communities. A powwow gathers all tribes and guests to learn about Native cultures. Last year, the powwow of the Bay Area American Indian Two-Spirits (BAAITS) gathered 5,000 people in San Francisco. This year BAAITS will celebrate its 10th Anniversary Powwow virtually from Feb. 2-6 due to COVID restrictions. There will be celebrations of dance, music, art, and healing. The public is welcome to participate at www.baaits.org/powwow. There is no charge.
