2015MigrationWaterWalkFrom the Migration Water Walk Facebook Page:

The Migration Water Walk will begin from the land of the Wabanaki, on Tuesday, June 23, 2015 at Matane, Quebec and end at Madeline Island in Wisconsin on or around August 20, 2015.

We will arrive and set up camp on June 22nd, have pipes smoked, share our creation stories and especially the Original Great Migration to Madeline Island where food was found growing on water. Then on June 23rd, we will move forward towards the First Original Stopping Point at Gitigan Zibing. Pipes will be smoked, sharing of traditions, migration stories and nightly drumming, fun for all.

This Walk is to raise awareness of oil spills on the Great Lakes, the St Lawrence River and train derailments that have caused disasters to our waters, fish, animals and vegetation. We also do not want pipelines across our country, namely, Reservations.

We will send out Protocols for Walkers, in order for all to know what to expect.

We need your help and donations for places to sleep / lodging, food to eat, and gas for identified Water Walker vehicles. For more information or to make a donation, please contact us at: www.waterwalkersunited.com.
