Part of the SAMAQAN: Water Stories series 2

This documentary from SAMAQAN: Water Stories, Series Two is one of 13 programs that continues to explore the theme of water from the perspective of North America's Indigenous people. It's the first of five films that trace a spiritual water journey initiated by the determined actions of Josephine Mandamin, an Anishinaabe Elder and healer from Thunder Bay to raise awareness about the future of this valuable resource.

Reflecting on a prophecy that by 2030 an ounce of water will cost the same as an ounce of gold, Josephine Mandamin decided to take some direct action. To raise awareness about the importance of water, she walked around the Great Lakes in 2003. In 2010, she expanded her mission, and embarked on a series of walks to bring four pails of water together from the four oceans that surround North America.
