Date posted to RCEN & GoodWork: Mar 13 2017


Position: Community Outreach Manager
Organization: Ecologos/Water Docs Film Festival
Location: Toronto/GTHA, Ontario

On September 24, 2017, respected Anishinaabek elder, Josephine Mandamin, will lead The Great Lakes Water Walk in the 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.

This remarkable event is being organized by a coalition of Indigenous and non-Indigenous people and organizations, anchored by Ecologos. It is a first step toward a National Day of Walking for the Water when every year Canadians in all parts of the nation will be invited to walk beside, and for, the body of water they love. And it marks a new beginning of right relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people for Canada’s next 150 years.
