The Nibi (Water) Walks are Indigenous-led, extended ceremonies to pray for the water. Every step is taken in prayer and gratitude for water, our life giving force. Walking for Water is a short documentary following the 2019 Water Walk in Chicago led by Sharon Day.

COVID19 Statement:

The video clip above is representative of a Nibi Walk pre-COVID.  We will only have one walker carrying the copper pail (a female) and one person follow with the Eagle Staff.  This is a relay walk and each walker walks 1/2 to 1 mile per rotation.  Be prepared to stay for the morning slot 8am to 1pm or the afternoon slot (Noon to 5pm) and walk approximately 3 to 4 miles per slot (it will not be in a row - think relay). There will be spots available for 8 walkers per morning or afternoon slots. When we have the opening and closing ceremonies all are welcome - we will be wearing masks and socially distancing.  There is no experience needed but all walkers will need to register - for more information please contact Peg Furshong | | 320-269-2984
