Indigenous leader and activist Winona LaDuke will speak about the importance of protecting water in her speech “Water is Life” on Tuesday, February 28, 2017, at 7:00 p.m. in French Memorial Chapel on the Hastings College campus. The lecture is free and open to the public.

LaDuke has spent the past four years fighting the construction of different pipelines on native lands throughout the United States. She has become a prominent figure in oil pipeline protests in Standing Rock and is fighting to preserve water quality in the Missouri River.

A limited number of LaDuke's new book, All our Relations: Native Struggles for Land and Life, will be available for purchase and signing.

The lecture is sponsored by Hastings College’s Artist Lecture Series National Speakers Committee and made possible by funding from the Artist Lecture Series Main Committee. It is part of a year-long exploration of water by Hastings College students, faculty and staff through academic assignments, a student-organized symposium and guest lectures.
