Blue Shawl Movement for the Water:

Announcement May 31, 2010

Aanin,

This is an announcement to all women to begin a Woman’s Movement for the Water. We can start by making blue shawls for powwows and ceremonies. An honor song for the water and the women with blue shawls can be incorporated into upcoming events and powwows, similar to the pink shawl dance for breast cancer awareness.

Water, Nibi, is Mother Earth’s life-blood and it is necessary for all life. We as women carry the responsibility of protecting the water. Currently, our freshwater is threatened by mining interests and it will be a lifelong battle for many of us to protect Lake Superior and our rivers, streams and fresh drinking water. Disasters such as the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico demonstrate the urgent need to learn from our mistakes and protect the world’s water resources for future generations. 

Please spread the word to begin making blue shawls.

Miigwetch.
