A graduate of Harvard and Antioch Universities with advanced degrees in rural economic development, LaDuke has devoted her life to protecting the lands and life ways of Native communities. In 1994, Time magazine named her one of America’s fifty most promising leaders under forty years of age, and in 1997 she was named Ms. Magazine Woman of the Year.

Other honors include the Reebok Human Rights Award, the Thomas Merton Award, the Ann Bancroft Award, the Global Green Award, and the prestigious International Slow Food Award for working to protect wild rice and local biodiversity. LaDuke also served as Ralph Nader’s vice-presidential running mate on the Green Party ticket in the 1996 and 2000 presidential elections. In addition to numerous articles, LaDuke is the author of Last Standing Woman (fiction), All Our Relations (non-fiction), In the Sugarbush (children's non-fiction), and The Winona LaDuke Reader. Her most recent book is Recovering the Sacred: the Power of Naming and Claiming (South End Press). An enrolled member of the Mississippi band of Anishinaabe, LaDuke lives with her family on the White Earth Reservation in northern Minnesota.

She is also the Founding Director of the White Earth Land Recovery Project, a reservation based non-profit devoted to restoring the land-base and culture of the White Earth Anishinaabeg. She helped found Honor the Earth in 1993 and has served in a leadership position since the organization’s inception.

    Glen McDonald why are you listening to this webinar if your going to get offended when certain remarks are made we know it’s Corporations that win in court, but who allows all of this to occur we don’t know of any native people passing bills in governments it’s true that it is mostly white people who are doing these things it is mostly white people who are given these positions Obama was just a token put there for votes from the black community. All the presidents come from the people who put them there to do what they are told check your history this is all a well thought out plan from the white community who don’t give a shit for the environment. Yes there are a lot of white people who do care as well and yes we know that too but how long have First Nations been trying to tell everyone from the moment the land was being taken a very long time I must say. So sorry if the " white" word offends you don’t come to our sites if you don’t like it.
