Hosted by the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Resource Center and the Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA), this year’s annual event invites the campus community to experience “SIJSIWAYULU.” Written by Xemi Tapepechul and featuring songs by Nawat Speakers, Nantzin Paula Lopez and Nantzin Anastacia Lopez Lopez, this story is presented in honor of Angel Rose, who lost her life December 2019.
“SIJSIWAYULU” is a two-Femme play about reclaiming Two-Spirit identity through Indigenous Salvadoran culture and diaspora; and empowering the Ancestral Goddess within. “SIJSIWAYULU” highlights the journey of a Native American Trans Womxn seeking to find her place in the world. Displaced from her community, estranged from her family, and alone, Alex seeks support from a fellow Trans Woman, Sital. Together, they find healing, language and community. Guided by the Ancestors, Alex finds herself within her heart of a Womxn- Siwayul.
This event is hosted in honor of Transgender Day of Remembrance and Native Heritage Month.
