Winona LaDuke

Winona LaDuke is a celebrated Native American activist and leader, environmentalist, speaker, and author. Residing on the White Earth reservation in northern Minnesota, Ms. LaDuke is the Executive Director of Honor the Earth, where she works on the national level to advance Native environmental issues and sustainable Native communities.

The former Green Party nominee for Vice President of the United States and Ms. Magazine Woman of the Year is also a founding director of the White Earth Land Recovery Project. LaDuke will debunk the widely-held notion reducing Nature to property and discuss the international movement dedicated to legally recognizing Nature’s right to exist, persist and naturally evolve.

Sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences and by Ethnic Studies, Environmental Studies, and Native American Studies and by the Center for the Study of Women in Society.
