Travis Richard (Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe) has been named as the 2023 winner of the American Indian College Fund’s (College Fund) Two-Spirit and LGBTQ+ Initiatives T-Shirt Design Contest. The goal of this contest was to raise visibility of 2SLGBTQ+ identity at tribal colleges and universities (TCUs) as well as in Native communities.
With this, as Two-Spirit and LGBTQ+ tribal college students, you might be right out of high school, and you might be returning much later in life. While the educational journey is not the same for anyone, the path of sorting through how you identify along the 2SLGBTQ+ spectrum will also not be the same for anyone. And while on that path, your understanding of your identity will likely change and evolve many times, and this is the experience of being alive.

My father passed away in the last of the 1980’s. After he died, my mom gave me some of his books. Among them was The Essentials of United States History (W. Mowry, copyright 1906, 1911, 1914). It is a school textbook, and my father stamped it with the date of 1937. He was a student at Rosebud Boarding School at that time.
