An Evening with Winona LaDuke

This event is sponsored by the Equity, Diversity, Justice and Inclusion Task Force of Catawba College in partnership with the Center for the Environment, the Department of Environment and Sustainability at Catawba, and the Salisbury-Rowan NAACP’s Environmental and Climate Justice Program Committee.

She is an authentic leader and exemplar of sustainability in practice. She is a gifted author, orator, economist, hemp and heirloom seed farmer, renewable energy innovator, and persistent advocate for human rights. She has done this good work for the world for nearly 40 years. Much of her work has emphasized water protection, Native American land recovery and resilience, and the interwoven ways in which cultural practices are tied to environmental and climate justice. A graduate of Harvard and Antioch Universities, she lives and works on the White Earth Reservation and is a member of the Anishinaabekwe (Ojibwe) and an enrolled member of the Mississippi Band Anishinaabeg.
