Paige Manitowabi, Wiikwemkoong Unceded Territory

Paige Manitowabi is excited to take what she’s learning as a Water First intern and combine it with her growing interest in traditional Anishinaabe ways. That mix of knowledge, she thinks, could be the key to solving a lot of issues.

“It’s new knowledge – I’m learning a lot,” she said of the water quality training.

Paige is currently combining her passion for water and the environment as the environmental field technician at Wahnapitae First Nation. She is also attending Laurentian University part time, pursuing a degree in Restoration Ecology.
