OUR WATER CRISIS

Marten Falls First Nation has been under a boil water advisory being declared by Health Canada in 2005 and has been without potable water since then. For over 10 years since then, bottled water has been flown in on a regular basis. This means that water bottles have been part of the daily discourse when it comes to using water to cook and consume.
