Missing and Murdered Indigenous Relatives

Monday, January 25 at 11:00am

Virtual Event

Join panelists Lenny Hayes, and Jessica Smith in a conversation on how Two-Spirit/Native LGBTQ people are often forgotten in the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Womxn movement, moderated by Miss Florida Seminole, Dante Blais-Billie. Together the panelists will connect the historic genocide of Indigenous people to present-day violence experienced by Indigenous communities.

Jessica Smith (Gidagaakoons) is a proud Two-Spirit member of the Bois Forte Band of The Minnesota Chippewa Tribe. She is a survivor leader and researcher.

Lenny Hayes, MA, is a citizen of the Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate of the northeast corner of South Dakota. Lenny specializes in the issues that impact both the Two-Spirit/Native LGBTQ individuals and community.

Co-sponsored by Global Indigenous Forum, CWGS, and Honors College.
