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.
