This is the start of something big.

Winona LaDuke

Winona LaDuke

Winona LaDuke is on a quest. As an economist, environmentalist and and activist, Winona works to protect our natural resources and as an indigenous woman she brings a perspective that has long been ignored and suppressed. As a photographer, I have been following Winona’s work and now as a filmmaker I am interested in telling her story as a long form documentary film entitled Black Snake. As I go along, I want to share parts of the journey such as this fantastic moment when Amy Goodman interviews Winona LaDuke at the Flood Wall Street demonstration as a part of the Climate Change summit at the United Nations, New York, NY.
