2014 Indigenous Earth Issues Summit
The 2014 Indigenous Earth Issues Summit took place on Friday, February 21. The event was curtailed by a snow storm which caused Winona LaDuke's flight to cancel. Our other presenters were able to get to Marquette to share their knowledge.

Much of the Summit focused on traditional ecological knowledge in the Northwoods. Anishinaabeg elders and scholars were part of the discourse, offering Summit participants a wonderful array of topics and lessons. A complete listing of events and presenter biographies can be in the Summit's program.
