Women’s International Day of Spiritual Enlightenment for Clean Water.
Thirty years ago, Anishinaabe teacher, Maryellen Baker, had a dream in which she was called to help to spread the Anishinaabe teachings with others. Her work began with creating a center for wellness, and has become more urgent as all of us have witnessed the pollution of the waters. Water is life, and it is the role of women to protect and bless the water, and the role of men to support us in that work. As we prepare for this summer’s symposium, we would like to invite you to share with us, and to partner in that work. On this May 20 we are hosting a 24-hour Action Day, beginning at 12:01 a.m. and ending at 11:59 p.m., titled “Women’s International Day of Spiritual Enlightenment for Clean Water.” The event will take place at Lac Courte Oreilles Community College in the Commons, and also in your living rooms, places of worship, and town halls all over the world – wherever you can gather a group of friends and colleagues to watch the live-streamed event, to talk about what you are seeing, and to support us by learning more about the water, contributing financially and with prayer.
This 24 hour live stream program of activities and education reflecting on the importance of water is brought to you by the work of the women and water coming together symposium committee. We have organized and outlined inspirational songs, stories, speakers and panels to help you to understand the vision of our creator and of his love of mother earth, all of creation, the natural order of life and how these are of the utmost and vital importance to the future of humanity. We need your support!
Throughout the day we will announce a pledge drive to encourage donations for the 2nd annual Women and Water Coming Together Symposium scheduled for August 5th - 10th, 2017 on the Lac Courte Oreilles reservation. This year our focus is on Women and Men, Together for the water.
Please see the AGENDA page for the 24 hour agenda!
