Winona LaDuke ( born August 8th, 1959)
American activist, environmentalist, economist and writer known for her work on tribal land claims and preservation, as well as sustainable development.
In 1996 and 2000, she ran for vice president as the nominee of the Green Party of the United States, on a ticket headed by Ralph Nader.
A Native American with Ojibwe ancestry, she is the executive director of Honor the Earth and is active in Anishinaabe issues, helping found the Indigenous Women's Network in 1985.
Honor the Earth was created to raise awareness and support for Native environmental issues and to develop needed financial and political resources for the survival of sustainable communities.
LaDuke embodies a number of critical issues: sustainable food systems, indigenous rights, first-nation movements, oil and gas extraction, and climate. She's pushing forward the frontline, and we all benefit when Winona succeeds.
