Text Quotes
Let us be the ancestors our descendants will thank  (Winona LaDuke Quotes) You’ve got to get people to believe that change is possible... You have to show that you can fight things successfully even if you don’t win.  (Winona LaDuke Quotes) There is no social-change fairy. There is only change made by the hands of individuals  (Winona LaDuke Quotes) I see a lot of damage to Mother Earth. I see water being taken from creeks where water belongs to animals, not to oil companies  (Winona LaDuke Quotes) Mother Earth needs us to keep our covenant. We will do this in courts, we will do this on our radio station, and we will commit to our descendants to work hard to protect this land and water for them. Whether you have feet, wings, fins, or roots, we are all in it together  (Winona LaDuke Quotes) Water is life. We are the people who live by the water. Pray by these waters. Travel by the waters. Eat and drink from these waters. We are related to those who live in the water. To poison the waters is to show disrespect for creation. To honor and protect the waters is our responsibility as people of the land  (Winona LaDuke Quotes) Ojibwe prophecy speaks of a time during the seventh fire when our people will have a choice between two paths. The first path is well worn and scorched. The second path is new and green. It is our choice as communities and as individuals how we will proceed  (Winona LaDuke Quotes) We are launching a campaign called Wind, Not War, which is about the alternatives to a fossil-fuels-based economy and looking at wind, an alternative energy, as key to that in terms of issues of global climate change as well as issues of democracy.  (Winona LaDuke Quotes) The thing about being an Indian person is that you feel most at home with your own people  (Winona LaDuke Quotes) The idea that you can dress up in some kind of a fake Indian outfit and get on stage is somehow acceptable in this country. That has to do with the fact that you have the Redskins, the Braves, you have people who dress up like Indians, people dress up like Indians on Halloween. That is acceptable  (Winona LaDuke Quotes) It’s time to respect the treaties our ancestors signed and care for our land, water, and cultures so that they remain healthy for our future generations.  (Winona LaDuke Quotes) I’m interested in what kind of food we’re going to eat as the climate changes. I’m interested in what kind of economy we’re going to have in another 1,000 years.  (Winona LaDuke Quotes) I think of some of my friends who have passed to the spirit world but are who here with me when I go to events and when I walk in my own community. My sisters, Ingred, my sister Marsha, and my sister Nielock. All cofounders of the Indigenous Women’s Network with me. All long time women activists in the native community.  (Winona LaDuke Quotes) I look at my own reservation, the White Earth reservation in northern Minnesota - on my reservation, one quarter of our money is spent on energy. All of that money basically goes to off-reservation vendors whether it is for electricity, or whether it is for fuel.  (Winona LaDuke Quotes) The reality is, is that the military is full of native nomenclature. That’s what we would call it. You’ve got Black Hawk helicopters, Apache Longbow helicopters. You’ve got Tomahawk missiles. The term used when you leave a military base in a foreign country is to go ‘off the reservation, into Indian Country.’  (Winona LaDuke Quotes) It’s time to transition beyond our fossil fuel addiction to a just economy based on green jobs, renewable energy, and local organic food.  (Winona LaDuke Quotes) I wanted to get out of Ashland, and I thought it would be pretty cool to go to school in the East. So I asked my guidance counselor what Ivy League schools were. And I applied to Harvard, Yale and Dartmouth - that was it. My guidance counselor told me I wouldn’t get into an Ivy League school. So as my act of resistance, that’s all I applied to.  (Winona LaDuke Quotes) We filed a constitutional rights lawsuit on my reservation, and I had to go out and interview all these old people. And I found that many of the old people on my reservation didn’t know who was president. That kind of pointed out to me the irrelevance at times of who is in Washington  (Winona LaDuke Quotes) We must keep these waters for wild rice, these trees for maple syrup, our lakes for fish, and our land and aquifers for all of our relatives - whether they have fins, roots, wings, or paws  (Winona LaDuke Quotes) It’s time to respect the treaties our ancestors signed and care for our land, water, and cultures so that they remain healthy for our future generations  (Winona LaDuke Quotes) It’s time to transition beyond our fossil fuel addiction to a just economy based on green jobs, renewable energy, and local organic food  (Winona LaDuke Quotes) Native communities are focal points for the excrement of industrial society  (Winona LaDuke Quotes) The only compensation for land is land  (Winona LaDuke Quotes) I don’t understand all the nuances of the women’s movement. But I do understand that there are feminists who want to challenge the dominant paradigm, not only of patriarchy, but of where the original wealth came from and the relationship of that wealth to other peoples and the earth. That is the only way that that I think you can really get to the depth of the problem  (Winona LaDuke Quotes) We are a part of everything that is beneath us, above us, and around us. Our past is our present, our present is our future, and our future is seven generations past and present  (Winona LaDuke Quotes) What we all need to do is find the wellspring that keeps us going, that gives us the strength and patience to keep up this struggle for a long time  (Winona LaDuke Quotes) In the time of the sacred sites and the crashing of ecosystems and worlds, it may be worth not making a commodity out of all that is revered  (Winona LaDuke Quotes) Our forests are not for toilet paper. They are worth more standing than cut. That deserves to be defended, not only by native peoples but also by environmentalists  (Winona LaDuke Quotes) I would like to see as many people patriotic to a land as I have seen patriotic to a flag  (Winona LaDuke Quotes) You’ve got to get people to believe that change is possible... You have to show that you can fight things successfully even if you don’t win  (Winona LaDuke Quotes)
