Winona LaDuke at White Earth Reservation.

Winona LaDuke hails from White Earth Reservation in northern Minnesota, she’s Bear Clan.  The Harvard graduate admits she’s really a Rural Development Economist but one that applies indigenous multi-generational thinking.  She’s held two lectures already, the first at UNB’s Marshall D’Avery.  The second at St. Mary’s First Nation.

During her lecture at UNB LaDuke said that indigenous values are not valued, even in a Harvard economics classroom.  Indigenous people are cyclical thinkers who share teachings of sustainability, she added “and [that] the world is animate.  Canada doesn’t think like that.”

But the idea of progress reveals dullness.  As she put it, we could cap emissions, irrigate water, change regulations and such however it’s an economy based on mining and waste.  She arrived in Wolastoqiyik territory to give a number of lectures, her next public lecture scheduled this Thursday at St. Thomas University.

Her lecture entitled, “Idle No More, Harper’s Big Oil Economy, and All our Relations,” will take place in McCain Hall Auditorium.  For more info click here.
