Welcome to this offering and thank you for your care and love of the waters …. We’re excited to share with you!
The Walking Water: in conversation with … interview series is intended as a space to keep talking about and celebrating water, sharing story and experiences of how water has guided us. For each conversation we will invite 2 water protectors to explore what it is to restore our relations with 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.
