Winona La Duke, internationally known American Indian activist, author, and environmentalist, presents "The Economics of Change: Building Sustainable Communities" on February 28. LaDuke, an Anishinaabekwe (Ojibwe) enrolled member of the Mississippi Band Anishinaabeg, lives and works on the White Earth Reservations. As Executive Director of Honor the Earth, she advocates and raises support for frontline native environmental groups.
"It is a great honor to have Winona LaDuke at Seattle University," said Anthropology Professor Ted Fortier. "Her consistent advocacy for environmental justice and human rights is both inspirational and challenging. I expect that her talk will draw many environmental and tribal leaders to Seattle University."

She has been awarded the Thomas Merton Award in 1996, the BIHA Community Service Award in 1997, the Ann Bancroft Award for Women's Leadership Fellowship, and the Reebok Human Rights Award, with which she began the White Earth Land Recovery Project.
