Four Rivers Water Monitoring

Map and Visualize

The Matawa Water Futures (MWF) project was developed through the Global Water Futures project to advance Indigenous-informed water science to support decision-making and water stewardship in the Matawa First Nation (MFN) homelands and traditional territories in Northern Ontario. The objective for the end of the MWF project is to hold a large water-themed gathering, inviting all MFN communities to attend to celebrate the value and sacredness of water, as well as share observations and scientific knowledge about the water, and share progress in water and environmental stewardship programs.
A vital piece that has supported this project over the years has been the relationships built within our communities, as well as those relationships built with other nations and organizations. In keeping with this appreciation of fostering and maintaining relationships, we would like to extend an invitation to include Indigenous groups and organizations around Canada and beyond who are working in water and environmental initiatives or programs, overall advancing Indigenous stewardship within their own homelands.
This gathering is an opportunity to: Share knowledge and learn from each other about water relationships, values and perspectives, as well as water & environmental stewardship practices and policies; and to Facilitate opportunities for collaboration and relationship-building.
