Here’s the entire interview with Winona LaDuke where she breaks down what a just transition from a fossil fuel economy looks like with Indigenous peoples leading the way.
La Duke is the director of Honor the Earth, a platform she co-founded with the Indigo Girls. She is a resident of the White Earth Reservation in Northern Minnesota where she founded the White Earth Land Recovery Project, one of the largest reservation based non profit organizations in the country, and a leader in the issues of culturally based sustainable development strategies, renewable energy and food systems.
A portion of this interview is featured in our episode “The Future of Energy is Indigenous (and it won’t involve pipelines!)”
