In this collection of short but powerful two-spirit plays, characters dispel conventional notions of gender and sexuality while celebrating Indigenous understandings.

With a refreshing spin, the plays in Two Spirit Acts touch on topics of desire, identity, and community as they humorously tackle the colonial misunderstandings of Indigenous people. From a female trickster story centered on erotic lesbian tales to the farcical story about a new nation of Indigenous people called the Nation of Mischief, this collection creates a space to explore what it means to be queer and Indigenous.

Includes: Agokwe by Waawaate Fobister, Hot n Soft by Muriel Miguel, and Justice of the Piece, Sance, and Taxonomy of the European Male by Kent Monkman.
