First Nations Native Women to Walk Around Great Lakes

A group of Anishinaabe-kwe First Nations Native women and their supporters plan to walk around all Great Lakes to bring attention to the dangers of industrial and agricultural toxins in these waters. The campaign is called Mother Earth Water Walk and is an annual event. They started out in 2003 walking around Lake Superior. Lakes Michigan and Huron were completed in 2004 and 2005 respectively. This year, they plan to walk around Lake Ontario starting at Niagara-on-the-Lake on April 29 and will end up back at the same point in a month. Lake Erie is scheduled for next spring in 2007.
