First Stories - Two Spirited
Available on iTunes
Two Spirited is the empowering story of Rodney "Geeyo" Poucette's shattering encounter with prejudice and his journey to overcome it. Geeyo has competed as a Jingle Dress dancer-a category normally reserved for women. During a powwow, an elder discovered that Geeyo was, in fact, a man and took away his championship. Deeply humiliated, he stopped dancing. Six years later, he makes a triumphant return to the powwow arena, realizing that the only way to change people's minds is to walk proudly, while being true to one's spirit.
