Nevada Littlewolf

Nevada Littlewolf is the first Anishinaabe woman to serve on the Virginia, MN city council and an influential leader in in many respects.  We spoke with Nevada about her Bush Fellowship, role models, the discrepancy of men vs. women in government, the value of diverse people in leadership and how Paul Wellstone inspired and encouraged her to get engaged in community.  She attended the Women’s March on DC this past weekend and we talked about that, too.  Nevada will be speaking at the Northern Progressives of Cook meeting at the Crescent Bar and Grill near Cook, MN tonight, January 25  at 6:30.
