RENEW Distinguished Lecture: Winona LaDuke

2:30 pm – 4:45 pm
During the Standing Rock protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline, a new term was born – “Water Protector”. This became the preferred way to talk about the residents of the Standing Rock resistance camps; rather than protester. The reason for this is simple – the actions taken during Standing Rock were done to protect the water and the planet. Water Protectors are not radicals that want us to return the middle ages, but futurists that want a clean, healthy environment for their children and the next seven generations. In these times of climate chaos and political inaction, we must all be Water Protectors.
Presentation will take place in the Screening Room of the UB Center for the Arts
