OtherWise Christian 2: Stories of Resistance

OtherWise Christian 2 v. 3

Kimi Floyd and I had a chat at a Christian conference where they told me about their name and some other aspects of their Blackfoot/Siksika heritage and so I asked them to write for OtherWise Christian 2. Their lovely reflection, “Balance” not only talks about what it means to identify as two-spirit, but also provides a thought-provoking second look at the snake in Genesis.

Kimi Floyd’s chapter, “Balance,” will appear in OtherWise Christian 2: Stories of Resistance (March 2020) from OtherWise Engaged Publishing.
