The Great Lakes Water Walk is an open invitation to all people to join an Indigenous-led Water Walk to honor Nibi (Water). Following Anishinaabe ceremonial protocols, Grandmothers and Elders will make water offerings, sing water songs and make petitions for our water to be clean and pure. The Walk will take place on Sunday, September 24, 2017 along the Toronto waterfront with a concluding ceremony at Marilyn Bell Park.
Inclusive FREE public event #BecauseOfWater, the first Great Lakes Water Walk concludes at Marilyn Bell Park with respected Anishinaabeg Grandmothers and Elders leading participants in a blessing of the Great Lakes.
The source of all life on Earth – water – is sacred to Canada’s First Nations Peoples. That special relationship is the inspiration behind this year’s first annual Great Lakes Water Walk on Sunday, Sept. 24 from 6:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Toronto’s Waterfront Trail.
