Grassy Narrows Youth / Canada

GROWING UP WITH MERCURY POISONING

Over the past 50 years, toxic mercury has poisoned rivers and fish vital to the Indigenous Anishinaabe community of Grassy Narrows. Because of government inaction, generations of young people have grown up with devastating health problems and the loss of their cultural traditions. In 2017, the government promised to deal with the mercury crisis “once and for all” – the community’s youth are determined to get them to keep their promises.
