Winona LaDuke on Campus March 7

Winona LaDuke will be on campus on March 7 as part of the American Indian Film Series to present Thunderbird Woman: Winona LaDuke,

Thunderbird Woman is an inspiring portrait of Winona LaDuke, member of the Anishinaabe tribe from the White Earth reservation in Minnesota. The film introduces you to this remarkable woman’s activism, which includes organizing against uranium and coal mining on reservation land, raising money to buy back land originally owned by Native Americans, and founding the Honor the Earth Foundation. She was chosen by Ralph Nadar to be his running mate on the Green Party ticket in the 1996 and 2000 elections.
