The warming of the planet has affected all waterlife in our ponds, lakes, waterways, seas, and oceans. The waters are warmer, the Co2 is out of balance and algae blooms are out of control. The Great Lakes Water Walk is focused on the health and wellness of water in a relationship context: understanding that water is life and therefore affects all life. What happens to the water in the sky, various bodies of water, or in the ground, is all connected to the changes of climate and subsequently its usage and availability. From a traditional Indigenous perspective, the current relationship we have to the planet has changed not only the climate balance necessary, but has also directly affected the health and wellness of the waters.
