About this event:

Created by laurie

First United Methodist Church
1376 Olive St
Eugene, OR

Winona is known for her work on tribal land claims and preservation, fighting pipelines and creating bold opportunities for Indigenous people to lead the way to a land-based, sacred and sustainable economy that respects the Earth. She ran for Vice President with Green Party Presidential candidate Ralph Nader in 1996 and 2000 and is a sought after speaker worldwide, and is executive director of Honor the Earth.

The mission of Honor the Earth is to create awareness and support for Native environmental issues and to develop needed financial and political resources for the survival of sustainable Native communities. Honor the Earth develops these resources by using music, the arts, the media, and Indigenous wisdom to ask people to recognize our joint dependency on the Earth and be a voice for those not heard.

Positive changes happen when we all work together! We are helping fund this movement.

“Native people are in a pivotal position in this time…(and) are able to be essential agents of change… ” [www.honorearth.org]

$10 – $20 (sliding scale).
