Great Lakes Water Walk - Toronto ON
The Great Lakes Water Walk is an open invitation to all people to join an Indigenous-led Water Walk to honor Nibi (Water). Anishinaabeg Grandmothers will lead thousands of participants in a ceremonial water walk along Toronto’s waterfront trail, with blessing stops at Toronto’s four river deltas (Credit, Humber, Rouge, Don). At the close of the walk, respected Elders Dr. Shirley Williams and Grandmother Josephine Mandamin, will lead a multi-cultural water blessing of the Great Lakes assisted by Elders and Leaders representing all facets of the Toronto community.
By sharing the Indigenous practice of honouring our waters, the Great Lakes Water Walk is an invitation to pause and reflect upon what we can do individually and collectively to ensure the health and well-being of our waters for generations to come.
Participants are free to join or leave the main walking groups at any point, with times and distances that best suits them. Everyone is welcome. We walk to renew our relations with each other and the waters we love.
