Internationally acclaimed Native American author, orator and activist Winona LaDuke made a visit to the Red Cloud Renewable Energy Center on Monday to tour the facilities and discuss future projects with staff from Trees, Water & People and Lakota Solar Enterprises.

LaDuke’s visit coincides with the Renewables on Tribal Homelands Conference, which will begin today, April 28th, and run through Friday, April 30th. Sponsored by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe; Trees, Water & People (TWP); Lakota Solar Enterprises (LSE); and the National Renewable Energy Labs (NREL), the conference will highlight the energy cost problems faced by the Indian Reservations of the American West, the new and developing family and facility-scale alternative energy projects being implemented to address these problems, and the future possibilities for Native American renewable energy development.
