Rebecca Mandamin, Waabshkanacotuk, White Cloud is an Anishinaabekwe from the Treaty 3 territory.

She grew up around her politically active father who led her to her interest in environmental activism.

She has provided presentations on natural law, food sovereignty and water issues. Growing up in her community of Iskatewizaagegan, she noticed there wasn't a lot opportunity, so she helps every year develop the community green house for locals and has even created a youth environmental group for her peers.
