"Being Two-Spirit in my community means that I am fully who I am. I'm not shy about that. I don't pretend to be someone else. Two-Spirit people are very gifted individuals and they can do many different things if people don't stifle their growth and development. "
Dr. James Makokis is a Two-Spirit Cree family physician who practices at Enoch Heath Services and in South Edmonton. His focus is providing medical care to trans patients drawing from both Western and Indigenous teachings. He was also a member of the winning Team Ahkameyimok on The Amazing Race Canada alongside his husband Anthony. They are also using their public personas from The Amazing Race Canada to help fundraise $250,000 for Kehewin Health Services. Congratulations James and Anthony on your win, and thank you for sharing your wisdom across Turtle Island!
