Land Back Camp

O:se Kenhionhata:tie means Willow River in Kenien’keha.

We are a group of Two-Spirit, IndigiQueer, Queer/Trans Indigenous people and LGBTQ+ settler accomplices gathering in the Great Peace to celebrate, learn and thrive in our cultures. We represent several Nations living within both Dish With One Spoon and Two Row Wampums.

O:se Kenhionhata:tie has expanded far beyond its roots and grown to include many projects of varied scope.
