A Harvard University graduate, LaDuke is an educator, economist, environmentalist and writer. She has been recently seen speaking on behalf of the resistance camps in North Dakota as people stood against the Dakota Access Pipeline project, trying to protect water, land and sites that are sacred to indigenous people. LaDuke is also known as a leader on the issues of cultural-based sustainable development strategies, renewable energy and sustainable food systems.


She has also written extensively on Native American and environmental issues. She is the author of six books, including “Recovering the Sacred,” “All Our Relations,” a novel entitled “Last Standing Woman” and her newest work, “The Winona LaDuke Chronicles.”


Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and LaDuke will receive her award and deliver a keynote address beginning at 6 p.m.


She joins other notable people, including President Jimmy Carter, Anita Hill, Charles Ogletree and Justice Cruz Reynoso, as recipients of the prize.


People are asked to RSVP by Nov. 6 at giving.ucmerced.edu/spendlove-2017, by calling 209-228-RSVP or emailing specialevents@ucmerced.edu.
