AUTUMN PELTIER, CHIEF WATER COMMISIONER
A teenage water activist from Wiikwemkoong Unceded Territory on Manitoulin Island, and the chief water commissioner for the Anishinabek Nation. Autumn’s advocacy for water protection started when she was just eight years old — and she’s been guided and supported throughout this journey by her mother, Stephanie Peltier.
Now at the age of 15, Peltier has already spoken at the United Nations, serves as chief water commissioner for her First Nation, and has been nominated for a plethora of prestigious global activism and leadership awards. She carries herself with unwavering stoicism; uses scant but precise words; and travels with a support system comprising her mother and aunties, who fiercely guard the young leader from anything that could perturb her while manifesting her mission.
Peltier’s back problems are so much the tip of the iceberg when it comes to her acting beyond her age that it’s in fact refreshing to see her texting on her phone after leading a sacred water ceremony in a spiritual center in Brooklyn. For a moment, she seems like any other teenager.
But then, the next day, she gets behind a podium at the Global Landscapes Forum and reminds: “One day I will be an ancestor, and I want my descendants to know I used my voice so they can have a future.”
