As a well-known Native American environmentalist, economist and writer, Winona LaDuke has inspired thousands to stand up for peace and their right to natural re-sources. Her work on tribal land claims, habitat preservation, and the rights of women and children is prolific. She graduated from Harvard University in 1982 with a degree in Native Economic Development. In 1989, she started the White Earth Land Recovery Project in an effort to help her Ojibwe community reclaim land and manage their re-sources. Four years later she founded Honor The Earth, a native-led organization that raises awareness about indigenous issues. In 1996 and 2000, she ran for vice presi-dent of the United States as a Green Party nominee, on a ticket headed by Ralph Nader.
