Two Spirit Rising is a limited edition screen print based on a mural Margaret August created in Vancouver during the summer of 2020.

"This art piece depicts two Coast Salish Thunderbirds surrounding a human figure in the middle.

Thunderbirds are symbols of power, protection and strength. The supernatural powers of Thunderbird provide spiritual protection.

It is said that they can take human form when they lift their heads up as shown in the design. When Thunderbirds flap their wings, lightning strikes, accompanied by the sound of thunder.

The human in this design represents Two-Spirit people. Two-Spirit people bring special gifts to the world and offer the same protection a Thunderbird provides. They are non-binary. Therefore, they bring a balance to the world that would otherwise not be present. Their healing powers are needed on this earth.

The Thunderbirds in this design are protecting our sacred gendered people."

This limited edition silk screen print titled "Two Spirit Rising" by Margaret August was hand produced by the screen printing process. It is the only limited edition printing of this design. The artist has inspected and signed each copy in the edition. The printer has destroyed all trial copies and obliterated the printing stencils.
