Climate Action Month Day 8: Learn about Water Walkers
Replicating the work of Grandmother Josephine Mandamin, people from across Turtle Island are walking to raise awareness of the importance of water and to encourage water preservation. Access to clean water is a non-negotiable human right and Water Walkers want this gift of life to be protected. It is important to note that Water Walks are not protests or activist actions, but ceremonies. Walkers are walking for the water, to honour the water. The Water Walkers challenge us to take responsibility for the protection of the “giver of life” so that all future generations can enjoy clean water.
