 Mon: 1 July, 2000*/Thur: 4 July, 1900*-  Winona LaDuke on "An Indigenous
 View of North America"
 	"Native people are at the center of a crossroads.  Native
 communities possess the experience of sustainability learned from years of
 observation, careful behavior and strong community- evidenced by thousands
 of years of living in the same place, whispering the same prayers and
 walking the same paths.  Native people also find themselves to be a target
 of industrialism's struggle to dominate the natural world.  They are
 possessed of resources, lands and waters now demanded by urban areas often
 thousands of miles away."
 	These are the words of Winona LaDuke, a leading spokesperson and
 activist for indigenous rights.  At the age of 17, she addressed the
 United Nations on behalf of Native peoples.  A graduate of Harvard, she is
 a founding member of Women of All Red Nations and the Black Hills
 Alliance.  She is Director of the White Earth Recovery Project and
 President of the Indigenous Women's Network, a coalition of more than 400
 grassroots Indian women activists and organizations.
