Title

“Stolen from our Bodies”: Biocolonialism and Native North American Two-Spirit Identities

Author
Presented at CELVS/ SoPHIE: Cycle de conférences féministe aux Bastions, Université de Genève. Genève (Suisse) - 26 avril 2018 - . 2018
Abstract This presentation offers a critique of the western binary (fe/male) organization of gender--which identifies biological sex with cultural gender roles and sexual orientation--from the perspective of indigenous “genderqueer” or Two-Spirit identities. Violent bio-colonial efforts to control/destroy non-conforming Native bodies and force tribal assimilation to the normative binary model are named “gendercide” by indigenous feminists who, in response, promote a politics of “sovereign eroticism.”
