Winona LaDuke is a long-time Ojibway Native American activist leading the fight against climate and environmentally destructive fossil fuel pipelines while promoting indigenous and regenerative agricultural practices on the White Earth Reservation in Northern Minnesota.
Winona and Frank recently gave a talk during the Regeneration International/OCA Global Food Summit.
OCA’s national office and organic research farm is located in Finland, Minnesota at the edge of Lake Superior and the largest wilderness area in the lower 48 states, the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA). We have long worked in solidarity with Indigenous activists and Water Protectors such as Winona LaDuke and Frank Bibeau. As Alexis points out, Native struggles to protect traditional foods like wild rice, to safeguard precious watersheds, and ongoing regenerative practices to nurture biodiversity are our common struggles. Stopping corporate plunder and destruction and regenerating the Earth and our communities are our sacred responsibilities and our most important gifts to the the future generations.
