Winona LaDuke Speaks at Middlebury

Winona LaDuke: Environmental Justice from a Native Perspective

If you even have a mild interest environmental or Native American cultural issues, this talk is for you. In fact, if you only go to one talk, go to this one. LaDuke is a huge name and for good reason. She is at the forefront of environmental activism and she should have a fantastic talk for our environmental school. Below is her mini-bio:
