Program Title: WINGS #02-17 Winona LaDuke's Indigenous Vision
Description: In her 1998 Mario Savio Free Speech lecture, "Indigenous Vision for the New Millennium," LaDuke explores the conflict between indigenous people who live on the land and urbanized industrial society - that is, cyclical versus linear ideas of the world, and their results. [If her prescient advice had been taken 19 years ago, Antarctica might be intact.] LaDuke has a wonderful way of speaking and presenting. She pitches these ideas to an audience at U Cal Berkeley that she knows is only partly with her, in a wry but encouraging way. Part 1 of 2 WINGS programs featuring this entire speech.
