A day to celebrate our waters, give thanks and have conversations about what water means to us so that we can safeguard our waters from future harm.
We did exactly that. We paused, reflected and shared photos and words of what water means to us. Here is what we shared:
Water is my life source. Water is non-discriminatory, water provides sustenance for all beings and creatures. There are many lessons to be learned from water. It has many, many gifts and I am forever grateful to our waters.
Kitchi Miigwetch for this opportunity to honour our Life Blood and Life Blood of our Mother Earth.
Water calms me and gives me a sense of peace. It nourishes my soul.
Miigwech to the water for everything it provides for our mind body and soul. It nourishes our body to keep us hydrated, protects our babies in the womb and provides mother earth with all it needs to grow that beautiful grass, flowers and trees.
Water is spirit, water is ceremony, water is where life begins.
To me, water is my constant companion, always there when I need it. Guarding my spirit and helping my family to grow. Water is a gift from creator, not be owned or sold. water is to be protected and honored. It’s vital to our future generations.
