The water is healing. The water is purification. The water is Anishinaabekwe. The waters of the Great Lakes are deep and ancient. Stories are waiting to be told by the women, elders, youth and various Anishinaabe communities surrounding the Great Lakes. Decolonization and matriarchy pave a path for visibility and voice in our communities. All of our communities need to support Anishinaabekwe, as Keepers of the Water.
