Volunteering at the Blackfeet Indian Reservation

I participated in the program at the Blackfeet Indian Reservation last July (2015). It was not strictly an LGBT program but I am a transgender (TG) woman. I believe my participation was breaking new ground for the TG community in particular. There were 14 volunteers including myself. I was treated as and housed along with the other women. I spent most of the week at the Blackfeet (adult) Care Center (BCC). I was treated with the utmost respect by the staff, other volunteers and the American Indians with whom I worked. The native Americans were very appreciative of our presence and assistance. It was a very fulfilling and memorable experience for me. I made many friends among the volunteer group. I am going to Cuba this year on a two-week volunteer assignment.
