OGC – Water Walk

This poster was designed to raise awareness for the 2011 Water Walk, a uniting of waters from all directions of the earth. The Eastern direction of the Water Walk that year started from Machias, Maine, where the Beehive is based. Anishinaabe people, caretakers of the eastern woodlands and great lakes, collected water from the Pacific Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Hudson Bay in copper pails and carried it by hand to the shore of Lake Superior. Similar water walks have taken place annually since 2003 to call attention to our water and our role as caretakers of it.
