The Anishinabek of the Gitchi Gami brought recycling to the Fort William First Nation annual traditional powwow for the first time. Several people are interviewed about the issue in this podcast.

With the help of our partner, ReCool Canada Inc., we were able to provide powwow-goers with the option to recycle - and people made the most of it! 75 kg of recyclable material was diverted from the waste stream. We also organized this mobile recycling depot for the 2007 National Aboriginal Day powwow, that took place the week previous (June 21, 2007).

The FWFN powwow took place June 30 - July 1, 2007, on Mt McKay on Fort William First Nation.

Rank #3: Caught Dumping Garbage on Fort William First Nation

Podcast cover
Read more
(click on the title to hear the podcast)

Today, Anishinabek of the Gitchi Gami Citizens Council member Eugene Bannon caught non-Fort William First Nation citizens trying to dump garbage on our community. Listen to his story in this podcast.

Fort William First Nation has a bylaw that is supposed to prevent non-community members from dumping any waste on our land. However, the bylaw does not prevent community members from dumping their waste. This not only has resulted in an un-engineered dumpsite called the 'Squaw Bay Road Dump' where waste is burned frequently; it has also created a loop-hole where community members let their friends (or people who pay them) dump garbage on Fort William First Nation for free. By doing this, garbage dumpers avoid paying $5 to dispose of garbage properly at the City of Thunder Bay Landfill, but the health of our community members is being compromised as these wastes are burned in vandal fires at the Squaw Bay Road Dump on a daily basis.

Rank #5: CBC Interview, AGG Pollution Mapping Project

(Click on title to hear audio file)

Heather McLeod of the CBC Radio Thunder Bay program "Voyage North" came out to Fort William First Nation on Wednesday December 13, 2006 to interview youth about our pollution mapping project titled "Identifying Pollution Affecting Fort William First Nation - Youth Perspectives".

The interview was meant to raise awareness about the over 250 random dumpsites found on our reserve, in the November 2006 project, which was funded by the Laidlaw Foundation. It was also our opportunity to invite the public to an Open House that took place on Sunday December 17, 2006, where the results of the project were communicated to the public.

The outputs of the project were: a poster-sized map called 'Fort William First Nation Random Dumpsites and Adjacent Industry', a Youth Declaration on Pollution Affecting Fort William First Nation, and a youth-led photo exhibit titled 'This is What We Call Home'. The poster map and youth declaration were presented to the Fort William First Nation Chief and Council on January 16, 2007.
