Join Mende Smith as she talks to LA TIGRESA (Dona Nieto) La Tigresa (Dona Nieto) made international headlines in the fall of 2000 when she blockaded logging trucks with bare-breasted recitals of her poem, “I am the Goddess,” putting her body on the line in the struggle to save California’s ancient redwoods. She is the author of Naked Sacred Earth Poems, Regent Press, 2010, available now at her website, www.LaTigresa.net, and in bookstores everywhere and on Amazon in September, 2010. The documentary film about her, Striptease to Save the Tress, created a stir at Sundance 2002, and can be seen by clicking “Watch” on her website. You can also hear cuts from her CD, Naked Sacred Spoken Word, on CD Baby and at her website.
