Battle River, AB - Danika Little Child
My Watermark is Battle River located in Treaty Number 6 Territory in Alberta.
I'm from the Nehiyawak Cree Nation. It is very relevant to our history and our way of life, it has a lot of spiritual, cultural, linguistic, and biodiversity ties in terms of how we live and where I am from.
I am a lawyer, and I work with indigenous people in Canada and internationally. I have tried to create a specialty around the issue of water. I am working as an advocate for First Nations to strengthen their ties to sacred waters and to try to support the minimization of the estrangement from water that first nations have experienced over decades, especially in treaty areas.
