Indigenous Water Protectors: In Tribute to World Water Day
World Water Day has been held every year since 1993 on March 22nd. World Water Day celebrates the importance of accessible fresh water and brings awareness to the 2 billion people living on this planet without access to safe water. World Water Day is about taking action to tackle the global water crisis and to advocate for the sustainability for our sacred water resources. As Indigenous people we know that water is life and that all life on this planet depends on it. Please join this important panel presentation and hear from three Indigenous Water Protectors on what they are doing to protect our sacred waters and to see how you can be involved in the protection of one of our most valuable resources. Please join Indigenous Water Protectors, Grandmother Mona Polacca (Hopi/Havasupai/Tewa) chair of the International Council of the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers; Sharon Day (Ojibwe) artist, playwright, water walker and activist; and Elder Kathy Sanchez, Wan Povi (Po-Who-Geh-Owingeh), Tewa Women United for this highly informative call to action to end violence against women and girls and our Earth Mother.
