We'-wha was a Zuni Native American from New Mexico, and the most famous Ihamana on record. In traditional Zuni culture, the Ihamana are assigned male and birth but take on the social and ceremonial roles usually performed by women in their culture. They wear a mixture of clothes traditionally worn by both women and men and much of their work is in the areas usually occupied by Zuni women. They are also known to serve as mediators. Some contemporary Ihamana participate in the modern, pan-indian two spirit community.
