"Economics of Change: Building Sustainable Communities" with Winona LaDuke
Winona LaDuke is an enrolled member of the Mississippi Band of Anishinaabeg who lives and works on the White Earth Reservations in Minnesota, and is the mother of three children. She is also the Executive Director of Honor the Earth, where she works on a national level to advocate, raise public support, and create funding for frontline native environmental groups. While many of us think about how to affect positive change and move our communities toward living in more sustainable ways, Winona has been doing it for decades. Utilizing traditional ecological knowledge, the White Earth Land Recovery Project has catalyzed community members to build local economies that work for all. Hear about her worldview, philosophies, her experiences, and how she "walks her talk" in everyday life as well as advocating for others who have little voice, resources or access. Winona LaDuke, a voice of reason, reminds us of the power of natural laws, and how through honoring the land we can all play our part to take care of the planet for our families, our communities and for future generations.
