This event welcomes donations to support Grandmother Carole’s upcoming water walk.
"Water has been my teacher, my healer, my comforter,
and is the very source of my life.”
Grandmother Carole is of mixed-blood lineage; her matriarchal lineage is Wabanaki. She was raised to believe she was white until she found the old family Bible that told the truth. At the age of 35 she began to decolonize her ways of thinking and being.
“As a mother of two and grandmother of four, I came to honor the Elders in my life who have chosen to see my heart and share knowledge and lifeways with me along this journey we call life. When Sacred Pipes were passed to me, I learned that their teachings are in fact responsibilities to the People: to the Seven Generations coming up behind me. Bundles are not things, they are responsibilities.
“I have been honored to have many teachers along the Čhaŋkú Lúta (Red Road) and began walking the Wiwáŋyaŋg Wačhípi (Sundance) way of life in 1999.”
Carole is a Pipe Carrier and Bundle Keeper. Carole was taken to the Water while on her Hanblecheya (vision quest). In 2011, she danced her last Sundance and began her journey for the SacredWater. Inspired by the Water Walks of Grandmother Josephine Mandaminand the words and work of Grandmothers Mona Polacca and Agnus Pilgrim, Carol took up the call of Grandmother Mona Polacca for all women to come back to the Water.
Carole walks to help heal the SacredWater and rebuild the human-to-water connection.
Medicine Wheel for the healing of the Water by healing the disconnection of human beings to their Source the SacredWater. This wheel came forth through dreamtime and many teachings will be shared during the creation of the wheel and as we work with the wheel to help us all reconnect to our Source of Life. The Human Family has become so disconnected that we see SacredWater as "our resource" to be bought and sold ~ like the cattle. By moving away from our understanding that nothing lives without water and that the Water birthed us. We spent our first 9 months within the Water being protected, comforted, warmed by the Source of our life. and when it was time to come into the physical world ~ the Water Broke and we Followed the Water into this world. The SacredWater still remembers you and nourishes you, comforts you and heals you. Come reconnect with your SOURCE OF LIFE.
