Great Lakes Water Walk

A Great Lakes Water Walk streamer, an expression of our connections

Ontario’s Indigenous Peoples launched a Great Lakes Water Walk held on September 24th, at the Waterfront.  This event raised awareness that water, according to Elder Josephine Mandamin, an Ojibwe Grandmother and Water Walker, is a sacred gift.  “It is the same water we all depend on, bringing healing, and uniting cultures.”

Organizers explain their commitment:  Because of Water

Expressing awareness through sign language

The participation of diverse groups of people, with a strong interfaith element, gave the event a profound sense of reconciliation. By raising awareness of the Great Lakes water as a source of life, all are called to honour and protect water as sacred.
