White Earth Land Recovery Project

8/15/2005

Dean Myerson,
Green Institute Executive Director, met with Winona LaDuke of the White
Earth Land Recovery Project, as well as with staff of the project and
the White Earth Tribal Government, on August 8, 2005. They discussed
ways in which the Green Institute could support their desire to
exercise more sovereignty over their tribal land via legal research.
Issues covered included over-development on the many lakes in the area
for resorts or vacation homes and regulation or banning of genetically
modified crops.
