We were told that we would see America come and go. In a sense America is dying, from within, because they forgot the instructions of how to live on earth.Its the Hopi belief, its our belief, that if you are not spiritually connected to the earth, and understand the spiritual reality of how to live on earth, its likely that you will not make it.Everything is spiritual, everything has a spirit, everything was brought here by the creator, the one creator. Some people call him God, some people call him Buddha, some people call him Allah, some people call him other names. We call him Tunkaschila… Grandfather.We are here on earth only a few winters, then we go to the spirit world. The spirit world is more real then most of us believe. The spirit world is everything.Over 95% of our body is water. In order to stay healthy you’ve got to drink good water. … Water is sacred, air is sacred. Our DNA is made out of the same DNA as the tree, the tree breaths what we exhale, we need what the tree exhales. So we have a common destiny with the tree. We are all from the earth, and when earth, the water, the atmosphere is corrupted then it will create its own reaction. The mother is reacting. In the Hopi prophecy they say the storms and floods will become greater. To me its not a negative thing to know that there will be great changes. Its not negative, its evolution. When you look at it as evolution, it’s time, nothing stays the same.You should learn how to plant something. That is the first connection. You should treat all things as spirit, realize that we are one family. Its never something like the end. Its like life, there is no end to life”
-Floyd Red Crow Westerman

“We sing this song like a lullaby. The song means the water is the life’s blood of our mother the earth. Water is the life’s blood of our own bodies”
— Grandma Nancy￼
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.
