Time of event


Two-Spirit Allyship: Listening, Learning and Challenging our Assumptions

Amazing Race Canada Season 7 winners Anthony Johnson and Dr. James Makokis share their perspectives on what it is like to be Indigenous and Two-Spirit in today's modern context. Through their own life stories, they offer important historical and cultural insights into Two-Spirit identities and how they differ from colonial notions of gender and sexual identity and discuss how their lived experiences as Two-Spirit men shaped their lives, including their time on the Amazing Race and their work as activists. Finally, we will hear how we, as leaders in the legal profession and business community, can be better allies to Two-Spirit and Indigenous communities and ways we can all create and follow our own pathway to action. This session will include a presentation followed by a fireside chat with Anthony and James.
