The water walk is a ceremony and women carry a water vessel and the men will carry a water staff that will lead the group at all times.
Because the Water Walk is ceremonial in nature, walkers may carry organic tobacco to offer to the waters as we walk by.
In respect for Anishinaabe ceremonial traditional women are welcomed to wear a skirt if they choose, and men long pants. (which may be natural given the mosquito season!) We welcome all genders and invite you to come as you identify.
Please do not bring pets, skateboards or bicycles for safety and ceremony - unless it is a service dog to walk alongside you.
This information was gathered from the Great Lakes Water Walk guidance check out their video on why we walk
