LaDuke urges tribes to develop renewable energy

Environmental activist Winona LaDuke will urge tribes to look at renewable energy sources when she speaks at a conference on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation in Montana.

LaDuke says tribes are too often urged to exploit their oil, gas and coal resources. Instead, they should be considering wind, solar and other types of renewable sources.

"We believe in energy sovereignty," she said at a press conference at Rocky Mountain College, The Billings Gazette reported. A wind turbine is "homeland security," she added . "And you don't have to invade anybody to get it."
