Story by Elisabeth:
"Kai is a two-spirit of the Diné (Navajo). Two spirit is someone who has both masculine and feminine qualities Kai wears a crown of cacti on their head to remember the diversity of ways their people have embodied strength and endurance over the centuries. Kai is equally tough but also warm and protective of their people. They are as skilled at using medicinal plants and healing as they are in battle. Behind Kai's crown are the mountains of their homeland. Kai's gila monster feet symbolize their groundedness in the preservation of themselves, their people and their land under harsh conditions. The scorpion tail reflects Kai's strong intuition and patient nature as much as it demands great respect due to Kai's ability to do great harm when provoked.
Kai, the great warrior and healer, is rarely seen without Maíí-jádí by their side. Maíí-jádí the coyote-antelope reminds Kai to have fun in the moment. He loves to get into trouble, often getting himself in situations in which Kai has to step in. Maíí-jádí finds clever ways to make Kai smile everyday and even gets a hearty laugh out of his serious friend. He too is adaptable like his two-spirit companion and together they work to protect their ancestral land and way of life."
