Standing Rock, The 7th Generation, & An Economics for Us All — An Albert Gallatin Lecture with Winona LaDuke

April 25, 2017 ▪ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Presenters: Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU and Gallatin School of Individualized Study, co-sponsored by the Urban Democracy Lab
Indigenous Organizational Hosts: NYU Native American Indigenous Students’ Group, American Indian Community House, and American Indian Law Alliance

The essence of the problem is about consumption, recognizing that a society that consumes one third of the world’s resources is unsustainable. This level of consumption requires constant intervention into other people’s lands. That’s what’s going on.

On the 96th day of the Trump Era, we welcome Anishinaabekwe activist, writer, and political leader Winona LaDuke to help us understand this moment in history and speak about ongoing efforts toward social, cultural, and environmental justice.

And she’ll offer ideas about what we can do to come together, address climate justice, and move North America toward a sustainable, post-carbon economy.
