Windmeyer, who is a member of the Iowa (Ioway) Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska, and the CCNY community members will discuss the importance of Native American Heritage Month. They will acknowledge indigenous peoples’ impact on American and queer culture and discuss how to uphold the values of Native people.

“It is important to acknowledge the indigenous history of our nation and to honor LGBTQ and Two-Spirit Native Americans when learning about LGBTQ history. We can make a commitment to be better as a community by listening to indigenous voices and including them in our conversations,” says Windmeyer.
