Join us in ceremony and in prayer for the health of our waters...
Many of us have been inspired by grandmother Josephine Mandamin and her dedication to water protection through walking for the water. In honour of all that has been inspired in us through her walks, we feel called to walk for the health of the Speed and Eramosa rivers that we enjoy so freely.
Because we are in a specific Anishinaabe Ceremony, women wear long skirts and men long pants to show our respect for our Grandmothers, for Mother Earth and for ourselves. Women on their Moon-time do not carry the water during this time, as they are already in Ceremony.
Accessible: There is a good stretch that is wheelchair accessible along the first leg (covered bridge to Victoria bridge), but the second stretch (south of the river Victoria bridge to Gordon) is not.
