Novelist Joshua Whitehead tackles what it means to be two-spirit, Indigiqueer
Joshua Whitehead is a poet and novelist originally from the Peguis First Nation in Manitoba. His work captures the realities of youth culture for Indigenous teens and he's been called one of the most exciting new writers in Canada right now. Whitehead's work also tackles what it means to be, what he calls, "Indigiqueer" — identifying as both Indigenous and queer — and what it really means to be two-spirit. In a conversation with q's Tom Power, Whitehead talks about his debut novel Jonny Appleseed and the complexities of two-spirit identity.
