Coffee and Conversation with Winona LaDuke

Tuesday, October 24, 2023
3:00 pm
Bachelor Hall 337, Reading Room

Join Winona LaDuke for a Coffee and Conversation Hour before her Altman Lecture, "The Next Energy Economy: Grassroot Strategies and the Future of Environmental Justice." Students and faculty are invited to talk about activism, environmental justice, graduate study, or anything else on their minds with LaDuke, activist and author. Coffee and cookies will be served.

Winona LaDuke, a Native American activist, economist, and author, has devoted her life to advocating for Indigenous control of their homelands, natural resources, and cultural practices. Her book, Native Struggles for Land and Life, tells of Native resistance to cultural and environmental threats. LaDuke testified before the United Nations about the exploitation of Indian lands. She helped establish and co-chaired the Indigenous Women’s Network, a coalition of 400 Native women activists and groups dedicated to bolstering the visibility of Native women and empowering them to take active roles in tribal politics and culture. In 1996 and 2000, LaDuke served as Ralph Nader’s running mate on the Green Party presidential ticket.
