Winona LaDuke is a leader in cultural-based sustainable development
strategies, renewable energy, sustainable food systems and Indigenous
rights. To Be a Water Protector, explores issues that have
been central to her activism for many years — sacred Mother Earth,
our despoiling of Earth and the activism at Standing Rock and
opposing Line 3.
For this book,
Winona discusses several elements of a New Green Economy and the
lessons we can take from activists outside the US and Canada. Also
featured are her annual letters to Al Monaco, the CEO of Enbridge, in
which she takes him to task for the company’s role in the climate
crisis and presents him with an invoice for climate damages. In her
unique way of storytelling, Winona LaDuke is inspiring, always a
teacher and an utterly fearless activist, writer and speaker.
