Meet Josephine Mandamin, Water Walker by Carolyn Pogue THE POGUE BLOG www.carolynpogue.ca
I was anxious to meet the Elder known as the Water Walker at the Sacred Water Circle in Peterborough, Ont. And Grandmother Josephine Mandamin did not disappoint. She is gentle and passionate, soft-spoken and strong.
Grandmother Josephine has walked more than 17,000 km around all five Great Lakes and beyond. As she continues her healing work, she invites all nations — wherever you are in the world, alone or with others — to join her each year on a fast for Mother Earth. Take the time. Listen. Pray. Be.

Three Native American women are walking across Mississippi on their way to Lake Superior. MPB’s Jeffrey Hess reports that they are carrying a bucket of water from the Gulf of Mexico to Wisconsin to raise awareness about clean water.
Two Anishinawbe Grandmothers, and a group of Anishinawbe Women and Men have taken action regarding the water issue by walking the perimeter of the Great Lakes.
