"The Water Walker" - Josephine Mandamin, renowned Anishinaabe elder and teacher from the Wikwemikong Unceded Indian Reserve in Canada, in a Northland College Lecture Series presentation. She, along with supporters, has walked the full circumference of all five Great Lakes, connecting with communities along the way and raising public awareness about the importance and fragility of our fresh water. Mandamin's example has helped to bring together more than 100 tribes and First Nations to sign the Tribal and First Nations Great Lakes Water Accord in which all pledged to work together to protect water. Mandamin received the Lake Superior Magazine Achievement Award in 2011 and the Lake Superior Bi-National Education Award in 2004 for calling attention to water issues and contributing to the well-being and protection of Lake Superior.
