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 third 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. In 2010, she embarked on a journey of four walks to bring four pails of water from the four oceans that surround North America to Lake Superior for a ceremony to raise awareness about the future of this valuable resource.

The Eastern Walk begins in the state of Maine. The Passamaquoddy people perform a traditional ceremony as a sendoff on this part of the journey. Josephine pays tribute to ancestors who began their ancient migration from this site, rich in petroglyphs. Taking a pail of water from the Atlantic Ocean, she and the water walkers head west. By now, the water walkers are gathering enough publicity that others, young and old, join in the walk.

After launching the Eastern Walk, Josephine travels to Churchill, Manitoba to join water walkers for the Northern Walk. Heading west by train, she rejoins the water walkers on the Western Walk to be present when those from the Northern and Western Walks meet up near Bad River, Wisconsin.
