We’ll have a conversation with environmental justice activist Winona LaDuke about Native Americans' struggle to protect their lands, waters, sacred places, and treaty rights.

She will be at next month’s Geography of Hope of conference in Point Reyes talking about what kind of ancestors we’ll become. After months of being active at Standing Rock, we’ll also discuss that movement, and what’s to come. 

Guests:

Winona LaDuke, environmental justice activist, author, and executive director of Honor the Earth 

Brooke Hecht, president of the Center for Humans and Nature
