About the event:
Sharon Day is a Bois Forte Band of Ojibwe tribal member and has been leading water walks for years. She will discuss the 2023 Lake Superior Water Walk and talk about the healing of the water and ourselves. Nibi Walks are a spiritual practice in which Sharon and others carry water along a river or lake to speak to the nibi water spirits and pray for the health and future of the waterways. The word nibi means water in Ojibwe. Nibi Walks involve carrying water along the river and serve as an extended prayer.Lake Superior Water Walk commemorated Josephine-ba Mandamin's walk around the lake in 2013 which began the contemporary water walks. Josephine-ba said, "The water has to move to be healthy."
This event is free and open to the public.
