The Mission and Vision for the Women and Water Coming Together Symposium is to bring together women from all walks of life to attend this four day event.
Attendees of the Women and Water Symposium will gather four days of information on water issues around the United States in order to work for Clean Water in their communities. They will participate in cultural discussions to add diversity to our thinking and understanding for all of creation and to heal ones own self in order to help others. They will experience age-old wholistic approaches to Native American wisdom and lifestyle philosophies. Together this diverse scope will enhance their self-esteem, self-reliance and self determination to help them in working with their community for Clean Water.
The women will have the opportunity to have a hands on approach to Native American spirituality, cross cultural training, information and interaction, understanding and clarification of age-old Ojibwe teaching methods and experiential opportunities for Native American methods and rituals to help them better understand the role of women in our families, communities and in protecting and caring for the water.
WHO: OPEN TO WOMEN ALL OVER THE WORLD. Just for women and men, as to live and work in balance we both must learn and participate.
WHY: Native American Grandmothers and Aunties will be opening their hearts, thoughts and spirits to your needs and offering you methods that can help you gain strength and wisdom for the struggles of life. We need, as women to come together for the sake of Mother Earth. We need each other for strength and fortitude to combat the lack of support for clean water. We are “THE LIFE GIVERS” our responsibilities go deep and we are looked upon to maintain life in all forms. We provide life for the future and we make sure life continues, just as Mother Earth does.
NIBI (WATER) IS LIFE! The Mother Earth Waterwalkers have brought us a great and important message. They walked miles and miles to deliver this message to us. We can add to it by making a unified statement to the world that we are going to make this better by strengthening the clean water laws, for the future of mankind. Our children! Our Grandchildren! Great Grandchildren! and beyond! THEY, the LIFE OF THE FUTURE, CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT CLEAN WATER.
