All Nations Water Gathering
April 14, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 7:00 pm
It will be an all day event leading up to the ceremony:
• Information sharing about the Alliston Aquifer
• Guest speakers including Josephine Mandamin Autumn Peltier, Candace Day Neveau, Becky BigCanoe, Liz Osawamick, Tasha Beeds — we are awaiting confirmation of more speakers.
• Setting Intentions and Prayer Poles led by Elizabeth Brass Elson of Dumpsite 41 & WaterWalkers from For Earth & Water Walk 2017
• Stephanie Peltier will lead a dance from a dream she received. Women are asked to participate in this dance and be prepared by wearing skirts, jingle dresses or traditional clothing. We are hoping for about 200 dancers or more.
• Josephine Mandamin will then lead the water ceremony inside the circle we are creating. The ceremony itself will be continuous singing and prayer for the water contained in all the copper vessels. Everyone is required to bring a copper vessel.
