Indian tribes across the U.S. are banding together in an effort to develop renewable energy on their reservations. One of the leaders of the effort is Judith LeBlanc, a member of the Caddo Nation in Oklahoma.

LeBlanc is also director of the Native Organizers Alliance and was an organizer of a Day of Action held recently in Pittsburg where President Trump spoke.
