The goal of the project is to raise awareness of water issues in our country and guide youth (our hope for the future) to find sustainable long-term solutions. This project will have a positive impact by empowering youth in leadership positions to incorporate traditional knowledge with modern science to bring a new and holistic perspective on the need to protect our natural environment and the interconnectedness between peoples, animals and the environment. This project ties into the theme of Indigenous Perspectives by incorporating Indigenous knowledge on water from elders and youth living in remote Northern Ontario communities, with the voices of non-Indigenous youth living in major cities and urban centers.

The project will begin with researching local water issues with a visit to the local Credit River. Students will Skype with other classes from across the country comparing tap water results and prior to participating in a 'Water Walk' with the Junior Water Walkers, students will meet virtually with a Water Elder to learn Indigneous 'Ways of Knowing.'

The Gladstone Indian Education students will participate by visiting our own Lake Michigan as well as the nearby rivers and Bay. They will sit for a half hour and journal every animal and insect that comes to the water to drink. They also will have to look up the message that each of these animals bring to them. Since in the Native Tradition, it is said that each animal is a messenger and carry a message for those who come across it's path. Then, the students have to share their findings with their classroom, parents, and teachers. For their parents, this is a very important piece of information, since many of those parents, grandparents and great grandparents lost the traditions during the boarding school era. This is a message that needs to be delivered through our messengers, for the messengers. Water is Life. Take care of our precious resource. Chi-Miigwetch (Big-Thank You)

We will learn more about marine mammals of the Arctic and use our community's Festival of Tree program to bring this information to individuals and families in our communities. To do this, we selected a children's picture book that focused on Arctic Marine Mammals and displayed it along side a decorated tree. This book contained many resources for more information in an appealing way to all ages. We decorated the tree with hand crafted, eco-friendly Arctic marine mammals and landscapes.
