Protect our culture, 1980s-1990s
Historically accepted among a number of Native nations for their embodiment of male and female spirits, gay or “two-spirit” Native men have long faced homophobia, which was introduced early on in Native communities by the dominant American culture. Few campaigns addressed this audience directly. Instead, most focused responsibility on all Native men.

American Indian Men…
HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, is threatening the lives of American Indian people…
Protect Our Culture.
HIV testing is one way to stop the spread of this disease. Knowing if you have HIV can get you the needed care and treatment to make sure you stay healthy and don’t give your HIV to someone else. Knowing if you don’t have HIV can make sure you don’t get HIV in the future and you can learn to protect yourself and others from getting HIV.
For more information about HIV testing, contact your local health clinic or call the Inter Tribal Council of Arizona, Inc. at (602) 258-4822.
