Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Bay Area American Indian Two-Spirits (BAAITS) is a community-based organization founded in 1998. This collection contains operational documents and promotional materials for BAAITS events, photographs, and ephemera from members.
BAAITS was founded in 1998 by community members that organized the International Two-Spirit Gathering in the Bay Area that same year. Bay Area American Indian Two-Spirits (BAAITS) exists to restore and recover the role of Two-Spirit people within the American Indian/First Nations community by creating forums for the spiritual, cultural and artistic expression of Two-Spirit people. BAAITS is a community-based volunteer organization offering culturally relevant activities for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex Native Americans, their families and friends. Bay Area American Indian Two-Spirits comes together to socialize, share and network in an alcohol and drug-free environment. In 2012, BAAITS hosted the first ever Two Spirit Powwow, which is now an annual event. BAAITS’ website: https://www.baaits.org/
