Inspired by the many Indigenous-led movements across North America, We Are Water Protectors issues an urgent rallying cry to safeguard the Earth’s water from harm and corruption

Water is the first medicine.
It affects and connects us all . . .

And poison her people’s water, one young water protector
Takes a stand to defend Earth’s most sacred resource.
