Gender roles among the Indigenous peoples of North America - Wikipedia

I like this way of seeing gender… as spirit power… it is certainly how it feels to me.

They would say “He is a man (in body), he has changed to a woman (in dress and manner of life). But he is not a woman (in body). It is his spirit-power it is said that has told him, You become woman. You are always to wear your (woman’s) dress just like women. That is the way you must always do."[25]
