13-Year-Old Water Activist Is Nominated For A Children's Peace Prize

By

Autumn Peltier, an Anishinaabe teen from Wikwemikong First Nation, has been nominated for the Children’s Peace prize, making her the only Canadian in the running for the prestigious prize, according to CTV News. Peltier has been working as an activist for clean water since she was eight years old, and her relationship to the element is deeply personal.

“When I think about how polluted the water is already, I think of future generations and my grandchildren and their grandchildren. Will they even have clean drinking water?” Peltier told CTV Montreal. “Water is alive and has a spirit, and like water is so sacred.”
