CALLING ALL COMMUNITY MEMBERS AND ALLIES: JOIN US AND WALK FOR THE HEALING OF MOTHER EARTH AND HER SACRED WATERS.
Mother earth needs our help in the protection and healing of the land and water. We as Indigenous people are caretakers of the earth and we need to work together for the health and safety for the next generations.
We, the Keepers of the Athabasca, are calling on allies and supporters to join us on a healing walk on Saturday, June 25, 2011. We are asking all community members of the Tar Sands region and supporters to come out and walk for the healing of the land and our sacred waters. The walk will be led by First Nation and Metis elders and community members but we are hoping that our allies will come out to walk beside them as supporters as well.
This is not going to be a protest march or a political rally, nor is it a race! It is a spiritual healing journey to focus attention on the water and land and the people who care about the future. We respectfully ask supporters not to bring any signs or banners, but rather to embrace the spiritual intention of this walk and show solidarity by walking under the direction of the Indigenous Elders.
