Grandmother Josephine left behind the gift of her teachings, particularly emphasizing the important role that women play in the protection of earth’s lifeblood. For the Anishinaabe, water is associated with Mother Earth and it is the responsibility of grandmothers to lead other women in protecting the water.
With the passing of Grandmother Josephine Mandamin, Canada has lost a visionary who made calling for cleaner water and greater water protection her life's work. Logging more than 10,000 miles on sacred water walks around the perimeter of all five of the Great Lakes and numerous other waterways around the world to raise awareness on the need to protect water, Grandmother Josephine was an embodiment of the phrase "walk the talk".
November 27 is Giving Tuesday - all across Canada, people will be giving back to the charities they love to support the causes they are most passionate about. We know you're passionate about making water protection a priority - and so is our Board of Directors! That's why this Giving Tuesday, they have generously offered to match - dollar for dollar - every donation we receive from Giving Tuesday until the end of the year!
