Two Spirit & LGBTQIA+ Community

On February 22, 2020 the Urban Indian Center of Salt Lake hosted the first annual Two Spirit Pow wow, an event celebrating our Indigenous Two Spirit and LGBTQIA+ community power and sacredness of their people. We are excited to continue to grow from this event to make our cultural gatherings a more inclusive space. Donate today to support our Two Spirit & LGBTQIA+ community!
