Praying for the water

Thursday January 24, 2013
Lenny Carpenter/Wawatay News
Youth drummers sing a women’s prayer song along the Thunder Bay waterfront on Jan. 16. In Aboriginal culture, women are traditionally the carriers and protectors of water. The song was part of a sacred water ceremony led by two female Elders and was organized by a local Idle No More group. The ceremony was preceded by a discussion about how Bill C-45 removed the protection of more than 2 million waterways and how the tar sands in Alberta will affect the water and the environment.
