(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) A globalist think-tank known as the Arctic Institute put out a call for researchers to submit papers observing “heteronormativity” throughout the Arctic tundra.
The group issued the study to assess the role of “queerness and indigenous” identities, arguing that these groups are not seen as a priority in the harsh conditions of the northern region.
According to the Daily Wire, the series of papers, called “Queering the Arctic,” focused mainly on gender identity among the native populations.
“How are queer people in the Arctic challenging well-established systems of heteronormativity? To what extent are they suffering from societal, cultural or structural shortcomings and how are they using their resources to overcome them?” the group asked in a press release.
The release continued, elaborating on the need to find so-called “hope spots” for left-wing advocacy in the far reaches of the Arctic regions.
“With these pointed questions, we want to challenge deficiency-oriented, ethnocentric and neoliberal approaches and invite authors to create a space to identify ‘Hope Spots’ from Indigenous and queer feminist perspectives, may it be artistic, academic, analytical or narrative,” it said.
“Two-spirits,” a person identified as having a masculine and feminine spirit, was mentioned as a particular area of interest for the institute, as an example of “precolonial Indigenous concepts of gender and identity have gained popularity in recent years, and how queer people are taking matters in their own hands yet again.”
The Indian Health Service, an acting agency in the Department of Health and Human Services, also has a vested interest in gender ideology in native communities.
Researchers in the department argue that native tribes accepted transgenderism, as some groups had individuals who “combined the activities of both men and women.”
The Arctic Institute says its goal is to provide “peace, justice, and sustainability for the Arctic” via policy decisions regarding the region’s military, environment, culture and energy security.
