About the Film
Sherenté, a Two Spirit Genderqueer teenager from Rhode Island’s Narragansett tribe performs in dance competitions at annual regional powwows of New England tribes. There is no formal rule which prohibits Two Spirit Genderqueer people from competing in a category different from their birth gender. Wearing female fancy shawl regalia, Sherenté dances with joy and beauty. Behind the scenes, tribal leaders manipulate Sherenté’s scores or disqualify them outright because of their belief in traditional binary gender roles.
Director: Stéphanie Lamorré
