The Mariposa Museum and Peterborough Town Library will co-present a live, virtual lecture by activist Winona LaDuke on Saturday at 5 p.m.

LaDuke (Anishinaabe) is an internationally acclaimed author, economist, orator and activist. A graduate of Harvard and Antioch Universities, with advanced degrees in rural economic development, LaDuke has devoted her life to protecting the lands and life ways of Native communities. In her own community in northern Minnesota, she is the founder of the White Earth Land Recovery Project, one of the largest reservation-based non-profit organizations in the country, and a leader on the issues of culture-based sustainable development strategies, renewable energy and food systems.

Viewers may gather to watch the livestream on the big screen in the library’s 1833 media room or attend through Zoom. For a link, register at

LaDuke’s appearance, her second with the Mariposa Museum, is sponsored by N.H. Humanities as part of their support of the Mariposa Museum’s series on Americans Who Tell the Truth.
