Name of creator
Two-Spirited People of Manitoba Inc. is an organization that seeks to improve the quality of life of Two-Spirit (Indigenous lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) people. 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.
Records in this fonds were gathered and retained by Albert McLeod, Board Member of the organization, who transferred them to the stewardship of the University of Winnipeg Archives 2018-2019.

The fonds also includes several oral histories conducted with Two-Spirit individuals.
