On September 24th, 2017, respected Anishinaabek elder, Grandmother Josephine Mandamin, will lead The Great Lakes Water Walk in the ancient sacred water walking tradition across the entire Toronto waterfront of Lake Ontario. At the end of the walk, from a barge beside Ontario Place, Grandmother Josephine will lead over 20,000 in a blessing of the Great Lakes.

And it marks a new beginning of right relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people for Canada’s next 150 years.
