WATER

How are we working to protect our water?

“I can see clearly through the sentimental veil of childhood memories, the voices of my Elders that taught me about the water as a sacred being… I am here to tell you not to forget… that the human race is a dynamic of diversity, and in the end it does not matter who you are, your race, religion, or your wealth… for we all drink from the same world wide well. There is beauty in every drop of water and when water  flows TOGETHER… it is POWERFUL… WE ARE WATER, and together we create change.”
Ta’Kaiya Blaney, 12-year-old Sliammon First Nation from B.C., Canada.
