Honouring the Water Keepers

Welcoming the Mother Earth Water Walkers & Great Lakes Canoers on Toronto Island.
Saturday July 1st

​The ceremony was a great success, despite some delays and rain. Here’s a link to the Toronto Star photos by Alex McKeen https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2017/07/01/in-photos-honouring-the-water.html

We were greeted by the Arythmics band who accompanied us to the beach and ceremony fire circle. As the Picking Up the Bundles canoe approached, Josephine went out to greet Edward George, leader of the journey who has been keeping pace by canoe with the Walkers all the way. The beautiful ceremony was led by Deb Danard with Grandmother Waterwalker Josephine Mandamin and Edward.
