She was recently featured in the Wisconsin Initiative on Climate Change Impacts (WICCI) Report, an online interactive paper. She is also featured in the YouTube video “Stewards of all Creation.” In 2010, Leoso received her Associate of Arts degree from the Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwa Community College.
