Struggling to preserve his cultural identity, artist and historian Aiden ShortCloud takes viewers on a journey to learn about what it means to be “Two Spirit”; a cultural term describing the fluidity of gender identity and sexuality with respect to traditional tribal roles across First Nations. Based in Boise, Idaho, Aiden recounts his journey as a Two Spirit individual trying to pass down the knowledge and wisdom from his culture. With fewer than 10 Two Spirit tribal elders remaining, Aiden’s story is as important as ever.
First released as part of SXSW’s VR Program, this 360 documentary was produced as part of Oculus’ VR for Good program in conjunction with The Pride Foundation which is a community foundation that inspires giving to expand opportunities and advance full equality for LGBTQ people.
