Winona LaDuke

Born in 1959, Winona LaDuke has always been very involved in her community.  Her father was an Anishinaabe (Ojibwe) from the White Earth Reservation in Minnesota and an activist on treaty rights and tribal issues. LaDuke grew up with her mother in Ashland, Oregon. Following her father, LaDuke became interested in activism in high school. She went to Harvard University where she joined a group of Native American activists and graduated with a degree in rural economic development. After graduating from college, LaDuke lived on the White Earth reservation for the first time in her life. She worked as the principal of the high school while she wrote her master’s thesis on the reservation’s subsistence economy. She completed her master’s degree in Community Economic Development at Antioch University. In 1985, LaDuke helped found the Indigenous Women’s Network, which worked to publicize the alleged high level of forced sterilization among Native American women. She also worked to recover lands for the Anishinaabe. In 1989, with a grant from Reebok, LaDuke founded the White Earth Land Recovery Project that helped recover 1200 acres by 2000. LaDuke is also the executive director of Honor the Earth, an organization she co-founded with Indigo Girls. LaDuke has written three books, two of which are focused on Native American issues.
