The All Nations Water Walk began at Lake Erie and is following the beautiful water way to the source in Dundalk. The walk honours the water and connects all peoples to creation. It is a walk to honour and remember the teachings of the first water walker, Josephine – Baa Mandamin; other special water walkers who have walked on including Violet Caibaiosai; and those who walk today.
Members of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation also participated in the water walk. MCFN Elder Peter Schuler hosted the Water Walker guests on his traditional grounds on Tuesday, Sept. 15, and served a delicious meal. MCFN Members Elder EdebwedOgichidaa-Val King and Andrea King-Dalton were honoured to also be a part of this event.
The walk is Sept. 12 to 19, 2020. If you’d like to follow their walk, please visit their website at: https://www.grandriverwaterwalk.com/
On behalf of the Nation, Miigwech to our Water Walkers and the kind hospitality of MCFN Elder Peter Schuler.
