Our Elders tell us of people who were gifted among all beings because they carried two spirits - that of male and female
The purpose of the society is to advance Native American healing and spiritual principles for aboriginal and non-aboriginal people who self identify as two spirit persons. To educate the public on the Sweat lodge ceremony and other Native American spiritual practices.
Dancing To Eagle Spirit Society
is dedicated to the healing and empowerment
of aboriginal and non-aboriginal two-spirit
individuals and their allies
The society seeks to honour the dignity of the individual,
building personal and community self esteem
by addressing physical, emotional, psycho-social and spiritual needs
using traditional Native American ways and culture.
DTESS would like to give a HUGE thanks to the
NATIONAL KATIMAVIK YOUTH ORGANIZATIONfor their amazing 3 years of volunteering with our Elders and on our sacred grounds.
We pray that
"Doing, Learning, Building a Nation... One Community at a Time"
