Inspired by the many Indigenous-led movements across North America, We Are Water Protectors issues an urgent rallying cry to safeguard the Earths water from harm and corruption

Water is the first medicine.
It affects and connects us all . . .

When a black snake threatens to destroy the Earth
And poison her peoples water, one young water protector
Takes a stand to defend Earths most sacred resource.
