Importance of water stressed – MiningJournal.net | News, Sports, Jobs, Marquette Information | The Mining Journal


As many of you may have heard by now, I walked with the copper pail with water from the Gulf of Mexico last Saturday when Sandy Stein and I caught up with the Mother Earth Water Walkers between Old Post and Reserve at LCO.  Anna Merritt and I are going to Bad River Reservation tomorrow, June 10. Follow-up on this day afterwards.

Please take the time to read about the important issue of protecting water for all species and for generations to come. Water is a gift and not a resource to be plundered, contaminated, bought and sold.

Today when you take that sip water, be sure to thank the water. She has been taken for granted and disrespected for far too long. In ancient times and with many tribal cultures of today, people remember to thank the water and honor her for the gift of life she brings.

    I Pray and Honor Water Everyday…I so wish I was able to take part in the Water Walk but I support all of you in prayer and respect.

    Blessings to All!

      Dear Akasa, I am typing up a small list of names that I will carry in a butterfly beaded medicine bag donated and made by Marilyn Vig. There will also be a tiny prayer bundle inside with sacred tobacco made by Ginger Wilcox. I will wear this medicine bag on Friday tomorrow, June 10, when we go to Bad River. Hope to share with the Mother Earth Water Walkers. Your prays are going with us. Bless your heart. Hope to write more after the day tomorrow. Memengwaa Ikway (Butterfly Woman) Mary Ellen
