Gifted Spirits

Nothing says 'freedom' like discovering that what makes you unique is truly a gift to be celebrated.

Adopted by a non-Indigneous family, Robbie Masden faced years of discrimination and rejection for being Native and for being queer. Growing up wasn't easy, but things changed when Robbie explored the gifts of being 2-Spirited in his culture. Today, he's living out his own unique triumphs and helping other community members to do the same. To see more of Robbie, watch the episode Two-Spirited Gifts on Season 3 of WIOT on APTN.
