Winona LaDuke is a modern-day Minnesota environmentalist and activist for tribal land claims. Her career in activism began in 1985, when she founded the Indigenous Women’s Network. Next, she began a struggle to recover lands taken illegally from the Anishinabe people since the 19th century. After failing to attain legal success, she started a fundraising effort to buy back the land. In 1993, she founded Honor the Earth, a Native American environmental organization. Three years later, she ran for vice-president on a Green Party ticket headed by Ralph Nader. She ran with Nader again in 2000, getting the largest number of votes for any Green Party ticket in history. LaDuke continues her writing and environmental activism to this day.
