Danny Grassrope and Joseph White Eyes pick wild plums on the Lower Brule Reservation in South Dakota. Eaten fresh or made into a sauce, wild plums have been a part of the Lakota diet for centuries.
Lakota culture has traditionally treated Two Spirit people as regular members of the community, not marginalized or stigmatized. The term honors Lakota (and other tribal nations) heritage and is not synonymous with Western labels of gay, lesbian or transgender, and should not be appropriated as such.
In celebration of WorldPride and the recognition of LGBTQ+ and Two Spirit culture and history.
