It is run by a volunteer Board of Directors, and its activities include awareness workshops, community events, and activism. It has existed since 1986, co-founded by Albert McLeod; it was registered as a Non Profit Organization in 2007. It is one of seventeen organizations affiliated with the International Council of Two-Spirit Societies.
