JoAnn Tall
JoAnn Tall is an environmental activist of the Oglala Lakota tribe who has worked to ensure the people can participate in the approval process for major projects for energy development. Tall was awarded the Goldman Environmental Prize in 1993 for her protests against uranium mining and plans for testing nuclear weapons in the Black Hills area, near the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation where she lives. Tall was involved with the Black Hills Alliance, a group of activists who worked to ensure that any energy development projects proposed for the region would need to be approved by the voters rather than being automatically approved by the State.
