FARGO, NORTH DAKOTA— Longtime American Indian activist and environmentalist Winona LaDuke is recovering from an accidental fall from a horse on Thursday, August 6, 2015 with a fractured pelvis.
“Well it is true. I am in the hospital. .after all you should not let a horse flip over on you. I have two fractures in my pelvis,” LaDuke wrote on her Facebook account Saturday. “I am up and about – sort of, with a walker.”
Down, but not out, LaDuke writes she will be appearing at the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission’s community Rice Lake Enbridge hearing with her walker in ten days. The hearing will be held on Tuesday, August 18, 2015 at the Rice Lake Community Center – Gym in Bagley, Minnesota.
LaDuke is the executive director of Honor the Earth, an organization she co-founded with Indigo Girls in 1993.
