[sherlyn's note: this is an excerpt of a message which was originally sent to

way tired but a few comments on tonight's show at the park west in
chicago.  venue was much less crowded and clearly not sold out.  [...]

3 5 human opened.  i got there half way through their set and the
audience seemed to be enjoying them.  girls opened with hammer and a
nail which i hadn't heard live in ages.  they played all the staples
which seem to include ctf with trina, po2, galileo, moment of
forgiveness (with bus driver on keyboard!), it's alright (e dedicated
it very quickly and subtly to the catholic church which i was most
amused by), dairy queen, fill it up again, get out the map, heartache
for everyone, winthrop.  they've played these songs at all three shows
i've been to thus far.  some 'new' ones included world falls (awesome
request by someone!), go, chickenman/bitteroot.

they closed with tether and midnight train to ga again.  trina's mic
was having trouble so tether wasn't as awesome as on other nights.  amy
screwed up twice which i couldn't believe.  i don't recall the songs
but she cited caffeine as the culprit.  girls were very quiet and
unchatty.  a few comments about loving chicago (of course).  a few
comments about amy's upcoming solo cameo at estrojam.  emily plugged
the band betty (sp?) as they will be at the same venue in october.
otherwise, not a peep.  emily didn't even say fuck.  oh they did sing
happy birthday once again to someone who's bday wasn't even until the
next day.  crowd was good and sang along and listened really well.
[...]  anyone else have comments?  i'd hate to be the sole
source of info for these great shows.  tata until tomorrow--greg

laduke and indigo girls talk up renewable energy
by amy kingsley

guilford college will host environmental activist winona laduke and  grammy
award-winning duo the indigo girls for an event dedicated to  raising
awareness about renewable energy sources friday, sept. 23.

all proceeds from the event, which coincides with the kickoff of the  schools
homecoming weekend, will benefit honor the earth, an
organization headed by laduke. honor the earth raises awareness and  funds for
energy justice, the implementation of renewable energy
sources as a means of generating income for native communities in the
americas. native american reservations have long been exploited for  the
mineral resources and used as storage sites for nuclear and other  energy
waste, according to honor the earth literature.

former vice-presidential candidate laduke campaigned with ralph nader  on the
green party ticket in 1996 and again in 2000. she has written  extensively on
native american environmental issues. indigo girls amy  ray and emily saliers
have supported honor the earth since the
organization formed in the early 1990s.

once we heard winona we realized we couldnt be environmentalists  without
looking through the indigenous lens, saliers said.

income from the guilford college show will exclusively fund efforts by  honor
the earth to buy and install a wind turbine on the pine ridge  reservation in
south dakota. native nations in the midwest hold the  potential for generating
up to half the united states current
electrical output through wind energy, laduke said in a press release.

the program will feature a short video about renewable energy, a
speech by laduke, short speeches by ray and saliers and a 45-minute  acoustic
performance by the duo. although the indigo girls are
touring, the guilford college appearance is a special performance for  honor
the earth.

there is a connection between north carolina and native americans  when you
work it all out, saliers said.

in particular, the speakers want to address proposals by duke power  and
progress energy to build nuclear power plants. duke power has  filed a
preliminary inquiry with the us nuclear regulatory commission  to build the
first nuclear power plant constructed in 20 years. the  company already owns
land in davie county, within 40 miles of
greensboro, which has been approved by the commission as a site for a  nuclear
reactor.

north carolina is the 12th-most carbon dioxide polluted state,
according to a fact sheet provided by the indigo girls. combined with
tennessee and georgia, the region is ranked the sixth largest carbon  polluter
in the world.

our strong message now is that nuclear power is not the answer,  saliers said.

honor the earth is visiting greensboro, they say, because of the
recent history of progressive movements in the region. the state was  the
first in the southeast to pass a global warming act, in august,  and is home
to north carolina green power, a nonprofit that collects  money to invest in
renewable energy.

the indigo girls have been involved with environmental politics since  their
inception in the early 80s. their political activities extend  to other
causes as well. the duo has performed at pro-choice and
anti-death penalty rallies and have spoken out about womens and queer  rights.

were basic lefties, saliers said.

although they have worked with laduke and honor the earth for more  than a
decade, their activities stopped short of campaigning in the  1996 or 2000
elections. instead, they stick to raising awareness about  issues.

my favorite shows are benefit shows because there is such a strong  sense of
hope and a feeling that we are all in this together, saliers  said.

i think there is mixed feelings about musicians speaking out, she  said.
but it is our duty as citizens. people are also very
mistrustful of politicians right now and i believe people know when  theyre
being lied to.
