More Strong Women: Protecting the Land, Water & Women With Dawn Goodwin & Simone Senogles

We continued our conversation for Strong Women on KAXE/KBXE with Simone Senogles and Dawn Goodwin.  Last time they told us about getting arrested, treaties and why they are there. In our latest we hear about the land of Palisade, MN and the Mississippi River and why they believe it is the role of Indigenous women to protect it as well as Missing and Murdered Indigenous women.

Dawn Goodwin is cofounder of RISE coalition; she is a Representative of the Indigenous Environmental Network and Simone Senogles is the Food Sovereignty Program Coordinator for the Indigenous Environmental Network.

Strong women is made possible by the MN Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund and the citizens of Minnesota.
