The annual Four Sacred Directions Water Walk at Mde Maka Ska (White Earth Lake, formerly Lake Calhoun) will be held this Friday, May 25, starting at 6:15 a.m. Here is the Facebook event, text is copied below.

You are cordially invited to join us upon the south shore of Mde Maka Ska (White Earth Lake), at South Thomas Beach, as we gather to walk for the health, vitality, and spirit of Mni Wakan (Sacred Water).

Our clockwise route around Mde Maka Ska will be in honor of and prayer for the sustainability and increasing recovery of clean, fresh water. The Four Directions Water Walk will respectfully embrace the fluid heart of the most populous community in Mni Sota (Land of Misty Water).

The water walk will precede and connect with the opening ceremony for the 10th Annual Mde Maka Ska Canoe Nations Gathering. Your participation will emit a resounding message to the world regarding our resurgent relationship with the sacredness of water now and for generations to come.

(Note: The lake’s name is Bde Maka Ska, but some prefer Mde Maka Ska, which has the same meaning.)
