Amy Waboose, Whitefish River First Nation

“A lot of people are oblivious about the water,” says Amy Waboose. “But for our culture, water is life. It’s important, and I try to teach my son the same.”

Amy is now working full time at the Whitefish River First Nation Water Treatment plant as an Operator-in-Training and Water Quality Analyst. She also maintains her strong connection to water by sitting as a youth representative on the Whitefish River Source Water Protection Committee.
