The Nibi (Water) Walks are Indigenous-led, extended ceremonies to pray for the water. The Ohio River Water Walk began on April 22, 2014 in Pittsburgh, PA [through Beaver County, Pa] and ended in Cairo, IL, where the Ohio joins the Mississippi River.
The Nibi (Water) Walks are Indigenous-led, extended ceremonies to pray for the water. Every step is taken in prayer and gratitude for water, our life giving force. We walk for the water, and as we heal the water we heal all of life. We are not a protest. We are a prayer for the water.
