Ep 17 - Winona LaDuke Talks About the 7th Fire and Economic Earth Justice

As a filmmaker, sometimes you find yourself in strange situations with profound meaning.  I was filming extra shots for a feature documentary on the hemp industry in Colorado and I filmed a talk by Winona LaDuke at the 2019 NoCo Hemp Expo to get some sound bites to add to the film.  Instead, I came to tears multiple times, while holding the camera, and realized I have to make Winona's talk into a podcast episode from the the front lines of storytelling.  This episode is Winona LaDuke's talk in it's entirety and it covers: being a water protector, activism and environmentalism for life, fighting dumb ideas,  choosing the right future, creating a better future by working together, regenerative economies, the Sitting Bull Plan (the Green Deal) and an indigenous hemp industry.

Winona's been part of many documentary films.  Most recently, The First Daughter and the Black Snake is a feature documentary following Winona LaDuke as she fights to block an Enbridge pipeline threatening sacred wild rice watersheds and her tribe's land.  The film is directed by Keri Pickett.
