Josephine Mandamin is a First Nations elder who has walked the equivalent of half the earth’s circumference to build awareness about pollution, laws, fracking, and the selling of the water. In February 2016 Mandamin received the Lieutenant Governor’s Ontario Heritage Award for Excellence in Conservation at a ceremony held at Queen’s Park. Mandamin is one of seven recipients of the award for volunteer contributions to the conservation of community heritage over a period of more than 25 years.
