Kandi Mossett is a member of Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara Nations, and grew up feeling a deep connection to Mother Earth. She has turned that connection into a passionate career as a climate change activist. Kandi’s work is dedicated to campaigning against fracking in the United States, which means going up against the oil industry and other powerful interests. Though facing huge hurdles, she remains unfazed, and calls on young voices to join her on the global environmental stage. Photo credit: Indigenous Environmental Network
