Lily Gladstone, known for her role in “Killers of the Flower Moon,” shared her use of she/they pronouns, influenced by her Indigenous heritage and the non-binary nature of Indigenous languages.

Raised on a Blackfeet reservation, she aims to decolonize gender through her pronoun use.

“I remember being 9 years old and just being a little disheartened, seeing how often a lot of my boy cousins were misgendered because they wore their hair long,” Gladstone said. (Trending: Donald Trump Breaks His Silence After Major Court Win)

“It happens to a lot of kids, I think, especially Native boys … getting teased for it.”

“So I remember back then being like, everybody should just be they,” she said.

“I wouldn’t say that he was nonbinary in gender, but he was given a woman’s name because he kind of carried himself, I guess, the way that women who have that name do,” Gladstone said.

“And there were lots of women historically and still now who are given men’s names,” she added.

“They fulfill more of a man’s role in society as far as being provider, warrior, those sort of things. So, yeah, my pronoun use is partly a way of decolonizing gender for myself.”

Despite Oscar buzz for her performance, she questions the gendering of awards categories.

If she wins, she would be the first Native American to receive a competitive Oscar.
