Did you know that Native American’s considered homosexuals to be sacred? It was not only accepted in their society, but they were worshipped and were given high social standing.
I’ll have to do some research
Gays were called “winte” or “berdache”, depending on what tribe you ask. It’s hard to know for certain how they were treated due to the “oral” nature in which history is passed down through Native American tribes. From what I’ve read though, it seems generally accepted that they were not looked down upon, and some sources do claim that they were celebrated (though I haven’t seen anywhere saying they were ‘worshipped’… though I’m hardly an expert). Some tribes thought them to have a stronger spiritual connection, due to their ability to connect with both sexes.
There was a documentary out quite a few years ago now called Two Spirits. It explored a hate crime towards a Native American, but gave quite a lot of info on Native American views towards homosexuality. If you can find it, check it out :)
