Winona LaDuke, rural development economist and author
“The essence of the problem is about consumption, recognizing that a society that consumes one third of the world’s resources is unsustainable. This level of consumption requires constant intervention into other people’s lands. That’s what’s going on.” —Winona LaDuke
On the 96th day of the Trump Era, we welcome Anishinaabekwe activist, writer, and political leader Winona LaDuke to help us understand this moment in history and speak about ongoing efforts toward social, cultural, and environmental justice. LaDuke will address the interrelated issues of energy, food sovereignty, Native Rights, and an economics for the 99%. And she’ll offer ideas about what we can do to come together, address climate justice, and move North America toward a sustainable, post-carbon economy.
