Plot
The indigenous peoples of North America, whose principles are as ancient as those of Judeo-Christian culture, saw no threat in homosexuality or gender variance. In many Native American tribal societies, it was not uncommon for some men to live as women and some women to live as men. This path-breaking study of sex roles among Native Americans challenges the basis of the dualistic way most Americans think about sexuality. Illustrations .
