Winona LaDuke is an Anishinaabekwe (Ojibwe) enrolled member of the Mississippi Band Anishinaabeg. 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. She is founder and Executive Director of Honor the Earth (www.honorearth.org), a national advocacy group encouraging public support and funding for native environmental groups. With Honor the Earth, she works nationally and internationally on issues of climate change, renewable energy, sustainable development, food systems and environmental justice.

Vine Deloria Jr., a preeminent intellectual of the 20th century, brought attention to the importance of place and traditions within Native American communities. He was the author of more than 20 works and was an active leader for numerous Native American institutions. After Deloria died in 2005, Reed students, faculty, and staff created the Vine Deloria Jr. lecture series to honor his memory. Inaugurated in 2007, the series recognizes the work of Native American scholars whose intellectual pursuits reflect the spirit and commitment of Deloria.
