Most of us call a man a man, and if he's attracted to other men he is gay.  A woman is a woman, and if she's attracted to other women she is a lesbian.  But why should that be the norm, and why should people be boxed into categories like that? Harlan Pruden, a First Nations Cree academic and a two-spirit educator, tells us that in his native culture things are very different and the usual norms should not be imposed.
