In the folklore of the Anishinaabe peoples of North America, the Prophecy of the Seventh Fire predicts that there will come a time when we must choose between two paths. One path will be green and lush. The other will be well-worn but scorched, and walking it will cut our feet.
 
Winona LaDuke—activist, community economist, two-time Green Party candidate for Vice President, and member of the Ojibwe Nation of the Anishinaabe peoples—says that now is that time, and calls for us to make the right choice.
 
On Saturday, November 4th, LaDuke will deliver the keynote address at the 37th Annual E. F. Schumacher Lectures, a Lecture series started in 1981 with lectures by Wendell Berry and Wes Jackson.
 
LaDuke’s talk will be followed and complemented by a panel discussion led by Nwamaka Agbo, a member of Schumacher Center’s board of directors and the Innovation Fellow at the Movement Strategy Center in Oakland, California. Agbo will invite young people from diverse communities who are doing work to reclaim ownership of common resources in order to build stronger local economies and ecologies – those who have chosen the Green Path.
