Glossary of terms

  • Gender is personal (how we see ourselves), while sexual orientation is interpersonal (who we are physically, emotionally and/or romantically attracted to).
  • Race refers to the concept of dividing people into groups on the basis of various sets of physical characteristics and the process of ascribing social meaning to those groups. In this demographic survey, race is self-identified. Race differs from ethnicity in that commonalities such as national origin, tribal heritage, religion, language, and culture can describe someone’s ethnicity. People of any race may be of any ethnic origin. [1] [2] [3]
  • Nationality refers to the status of belonging to a particular nation, whether by birth or naturalization. It describes a legal relationship between an individual person and a political state. E.g.: American, Canadian. [1]
  • Two-Spirit is a modern pan-Native American umbrella term. Indigenous individuals may use the term Two-Spirit to reclaim traditions related to gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, spiritual identity, and/or traditional roles. [1] [2]
