LaDuke speaks tomorrow

Winona LaDuke will speak at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow at Mass Media and Technology Hall auditorium.

Her presentation is called “Last Woman Standing: A Sweeping Indictment of Racism and Oppression.”

“LaDuke is a dynamic speaker,” said Jane Olmsted, director of women’s studies. “She makes you think about things in new and different ways and gives you new ideas … we all need that.”

LaDuke is a Native American activist and author of “Last Woman Standing.” In her book, she discusses her experiences as a Native American on a reservation and the fight to restore their culture.

LaDuke was Ralph Nader’s running mate on the 2000 Green Party presidential ticket.

“She is very provocative and has a strong opinion,” said Tim Evans, assistant professor in the folk studies. “You can agree or disagree, but she makes you think.”
