- WHO: Winona LaDuke is a Harvard-educated economist, environmental activist, author, hemp farmer, grandmother, and a two-time former Green Party Vice President candidate with Ralph Nader. LaDuke specializes in environmental justice, rural development, economic, food, and energy sovereignty. Living and working on the White Earth reservation in northern Minnesota, she leads several organizations including Honor the Earth, Anishinaabe Agriculture Institute, Akiing, and Winona’s Hemp. These organizations develop and model cultural-based sustainable development strategies utilizing renewable energy and sustainable food systems.
- WHAT: A Just Transition focuses on the move away from fossil fuels and into an economy that is supportive of wild rice and hemp. LaDuke will discuss the need for a graceful transition to an economy that is economically sustainable and unprejudiced for all. She will acknowledge the importance of Indigenous knowledge in creating a fair transition that is beneficial for everyone.
