A speech by the environmental and Native American activist Winona LaDuke. LaDuke describes the difference between the 'natural order' and the 'synthetic order', speaks about desertification and water contamination, and exhorts the audience to respect the Earth. This is a presentation from the "On the Fate of the Earth" conference held October 19-21, 1982 at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine and Columbia University, New York City. On this weekend physicians, environmentalists, physicists, writers, economists, professors, biologists, and others gathered together to share their perspectives on the peaceful preservation of life. The recordings and excerpts were produced by Raffaelo Mazza and Bob Rufsvold, KPFK. Restricted distribution rights.
