"Revolutionary women inspire evolution."
WINONA LADUKE is, obviously, an homage to the amazing mother, writer and activist Winona LaDuke. More broadly, however, it is an evolutionary tale of the cathartic power of female energy and strong women generally. It is a quick illustration of how the power of the right woman can evolve a man from searching for simple pleasure to wanting to learn the classics and seek deeper existential meaning. We see how Michelle Obama keeps Barack on-point—similarly, Winona LaDuke is the story of how she made the narrator want to be a better man.
Winona LaDuke can be found on Gyasi Ross' premiere album, Isskootsik (Before Here Was Here), Available Now!
