Potable water no longer a dream for Namaygoosisgagun First Nation

NAMAYGOOSISGAGUN— For the very first time in 40 years, residents of Collins Lake are able to drink water from their own lake thanks to the determination of the citizens and leadership of Namaygoosisgagun, technology of Sawyer Products and the support of the Dreamcatcher Fund.

Stevie Salas, a world-renowned guitarist and producer of music, film, and television, and award-winning film and television producer Christina Fon both joined Darrel Larson, International Director of Sawyer Products, to provide the gift of clean drinking water to Namaygoosisgagun First Nation, a small, remote access Anishinabek First Nation located in Northwestern Ontario within the Robinson Superior Treaty of 1850.

I carry bottles of water, but I also have a Sawyer squeeze water filter. Also, if it’s cold, make sure you sleep with your water filter in your sleeping bag, so it doesn’t freeze.
