Henry Red Cloud in Washington, D.C.

Henry Red Cloud, TWP’s Pine Ridge Coordinator and the founder of Lakota Solar Enterprises (LSE), has been recognized as a 2009 Innovative Idea Champion by the Corporation for Enterprise Development (CFED).  Henry left today for Washington, D.C. to present his concepts of renewable energy on tribal lands at the CFED’s 2009 Innovation Summit.  Accompanied by TWP National Director Richard Fox and TWP Board President Jon Becker, Henry will engage with other innovators to shape and advance next-generation solutions addressing today’s unprecedented economic uncertainty.  This great honor has provided Henry, Richard, and Jon a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet with key figures in Washington to gain support for renewable energy for Native Americans – “a new way to honor the old ways.” Safe travels Henry, Richard, and Jon!
