WALKING WATER is an invitation, an action, an educational journey and a prayer intended to bring our voices, our stories, our commitment to our local and global watersheds through the act of walking together, following the waterways both natural and human-made.
We have invited Gigi Coyle and Orland Bishop to join for the second of our interview series. Both Gigi (Co-founder of Walking Water) and Orland have dedicated their lives to, and been guided by, Water. They are Guardians of Walking Water and have collaborated together for some years now. We are excited to explore deeper their relationship to water and what they see is needed for a healthy water future.
For our third In Conversation With ... we welcome Simone Senogles and Marian Moore of the Line 3 campaign in Minnesota and Crystal Cavalier-Keck of the NoMVP Southgate pipeline campaign. We will discuss both of these campaigns, their current status and the damage pipelines do to the waters, lands and peoples.
We have invited Kathy Bancroft and Alan Bacock to join us for our first interview. Kathy Bancroft is the Tribal Historic Preservation officer and Elder of the Lone Pine Paiute-Shoshone tribe and Alan Bacock is the former water coordinator with the Big Pine Paiute Tribe. Both have been instrumental on the path of Walking Water. We will hear some of the water history of Payahuunadu (Owens Valley, Eastern Sierras, CA), what is happening currently in the valley's relationship with Los Angeles and about the vision that is held by the Numu/Paiute peoples.
This map intends to highlight some of the water walks that are happening in the world today and the paths that have been walked for generations. We have the chance to recognize and move from ‘boundaries’ to respect for places, homelands as well as migrations, pathways and journeys. Also included are projects from around the world that are working with water in ways we feel are inspiring and community-based.
