For centuries, mainstream society has been making incredible demands of the lands it inhabits, with little concern for reciprocity. As the Conway community plans for its next 50 years, it’s our role as designers, planners, community members, and humans to stop, look, and listen.
The Conway School is looking forward to an online conversation with internationally acclaimed author, orator, and activist Winona LaDuke (Anishinaabe) about our relationships with land, what they mean, how they impact us and others, and how we carry them forward in a regenerative way. We invite you all to attend!
What is the Land Asking of Us? Perspectives to Guide the Next 50 Years
A conversation with Winona LaDuke
Thursday, May 11, 2023 7:00-8:30pm EST via Zoom
LaDuke is founder and Co-Director of Honor the Earth, a national advocacy group encouraging public support and funding for native environmental groups. With Honor the Earth, she works nationally and internationally on issues of climate change, renewable energy, sustainable development, food systems and environmental justice.
Her conversation with the community will be moderated by Conway alum Jamie Pottern ’12, whose work with American Farmland Trust extends across New England to address land access barriers for farmers, protect farmland, and provide support to conservation organizations and communities.
We are honored to be sharing this time and space with Winona LaDuke, and are excited to learn from her vast experiences in land stewardship and indigenous advocacy.
All are welcome and encouraged to join us for this online event. Attendance is free and registration is required. Please register below.
