Tewa Women United: Winona LaDuke on climate change in Santa Fe

Winona LaDuke

Wednesday • August 18 • Tipton Hall • 7:00pm
Tipton Hall, College of Santa Fe 1600 St. Michael's Drive, Santa Fe (just south of Cerrillos)
Ojibwe prophecies speak of a time when we will have a choice between two paths. The first path is well-worn and scorched. The second path is new and green. It is our choice as communities and as individuals how we will proceed. We've already raised the average temperature of the globe one degree. The question is whether we can stop it from rising much more: this is at the core of our survival. It is essential for us to look at the world's economic and environmental realities in order to make critical decisions about our future.

That means we must address issues such as climate change, peak oil and food insecurity.

Photographs by Subhankar Banerjee will also be on display.
Banerjee's photographs and writings have reached tens of millions of people around the world and he continues to give lectures on issues of climate change, resource development, biological diversity, human rights, and eco-cultural sustainability.

We must decide whether we want to determine our own future or lease it out for royalties.

This event is co-sponsored by TEWA Women United.

As Winona LaDuke says "We gotta enjoy and get used to the taste of winning!"

Let's win together,
