Water is Life
The Water Song Project engages women around the world to become keepers of the water in spirit and action.
It starts with an Algonquin Water Song that expresses loving gratitude for the water and raises the consciousness and connection of women with Mother Nature’s greatest gift. The song is easy to learn, and our vision is that millions of women will sing it, raising their own connection and awareness of the water they interact with daily even in the shower or at the sink. We believe this is a powerful step to change, leading to both a spiritual as well as environmental shift on our planet.
Our water is under siege from pollution, climate change, mismanagement, and corporate environmental disaster, Without clean water, we cannot live. In Native American and many other indigenous cultures, women are the Keepers of the Water, and men are the Keepers of Fire. In recent months, many brave women who are Water Protectors have captured the attention of the world whether at Standing Rock, attempting to stop the pipelines, or Flint, Michigan, demanding clean water for their children, or ever increasing battlegrounds of environmental disaster.
The Elders have understood since the beginning of time that clean water is essential for the survival of all living beings, and they continue to fight and advocate for Mother Earth’s most precious resource. Now, they are asking women to join them for one minute a day to sing to the water. It is incumbent for all of us, especially the women, to help them raise awareness and protect the water for future generations.
