Sue Masten: WEWIN honors women leaders at annual meeting

"It’s hard to believe, but WEWIN’s (Women Empowering Women for Indian Nations) eighth annual conference is quickly approaching. WEWIN was founded to foster personal and professional growth of Native women. At every conference, we host an honoring luncheon to pay tribute to an impressive group of women for their hard work, dedication and contributions to their tribal communities. We must support other women in their endeavors and appreciate the sacrifices they make to create a better future for our young ones.

This year, we’re excited to honor Winona LaDuke, Ada Deer, Margo Gray-Proctor, Arlene Weous, and the late Elouise Cobell. Their life achievements will be highlighted during the honoring luncheon on August 22 at Mystic Lake Casino & Hotel in Prior Lake, Minn."
