Josephine Mandamin, a renowned Anishinawbe elder, has spent the last 10 years on a remarkable journey on foot to raise awareness of the importance, fragility and sacredness of water, including walking around all the Great Lakes down to the mouth of the St. Lawrence River. In 2011, Josephine embarked on her most ambitious walk yet: to collect four pails of water from Hudson Bay, the Atlantic Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico and the Pacific Ocean, ending at the Great Lakes.
