Paige 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 working as the environmental field technician at Wahnapitae First Nation. She is also attending Laurentian University part-time, pursuing a degree in Restoration Ecology.
