We'wha (1849-1896, various spellings) was a Zuni Native American lhamana, which is the Zuni term for what now may be called a male-bodied Two-spirit. She was described in the book The Zuni Man-Woman, by Will Roscoe. The anthropologist Matilda Coxe Stevenson wrote a great deal about We'wha, and even hosted her to visit Washington D.C. in 1886, where she met President Grover Cleveland and was generally mistaken for a biological woman. She was a cultural ambassador for her people, and performed the role of Kolhamana, the lhamana kachina of the Zuni. She died in 1896.
