Water walk begins from headwaters of Mississippi, headed to Capitol by August 25

August 7, 2021

This morning, water walkers left Fire Light Camp on the Mississippi on a walk to St. Paul. They will be walking for two weeks to their destination of the Minnesota State Capitol Building, arriving by August 25th. The Capitol Building will hold a large welcome event to celebrate the walkers, and tell President Biden to step in and direct the Army Corps to cancel this pipeline’s permits.

Enbridge is currently violating 21 river crossings, and hundreds of waterways across Minnesota. In the style of walks led by the American Indian Movement (AIM), water protectors are on a prayerful walk in solidarity with Mississippi River, “Nibi” (water), and to #HonortheTreaties that all of our ancestors signed.

You are invited to join some or all of the walk, host walkers, and join events along the route. Go to Treaty People Walk for Water for more details.
