"The First Official Thanksgiving" tells the story of what some historians might call the first "official, English-speaking" Thanksgiving held in the Americas.

Two-Spirit Powwow

“Two-Spirit Powwow” shows how the San Francisco nonprofit Bay Area American Indian Two-Spirits (BAAITS) has hosted an annual queer-friendly powwow since 2012, the first and largest LGBTQI-hosted one of its kind in North America. When traditional conservative powwow protocol conflicts with queer-positive identity, the two-spirit powwow changes up the rules.
