Winona LaDuke was inspiring and a much needed voice on campus. We want to diversify our views and open up the conversation- and bringing Indigenous intellectuals to our campus community is one way to do this. We are thankful to the CDI, IDPC, and VWMLS for facilitating this event. Thank you to MTU for providing funding and space. More please!
