“Two Spirits” Peacable Cities Evanston Film Screening

Mark your calendars for the next Speaking Up event: a screening of Lydia Nibley’s film Two Spirits, Sunday March 4, 4 pm, Family Focus, 2010 Dewey Avenue, Evanston.

Filmmaker Lydia Nibley explores the cultural context behind a tragic and senseless murder. Fred Martinez was a Navajo youth slain at the age of 16 by a man who bragged to his friends that he ‘bug-smashed a fag’. But Fred was part of an honored Navajo tradition – the ‘nadleeh’, or ‘two-spirit’, who possesses a balance of masculine and feminine traits. Through telling Fred’s story, Nibley reminds us of the values that America’s indigenous peoples have long embraced. (Outfest, IMDB)
