The Waitaha Water Gathering happens every 50 years and has happened for thousands of years, always behind closed doors. This year is the first time in recorded human history that the Water people of Earth are opening up their libraries, and are inviting us, the modern world and other first Nations to bring our wisdom to their Gathering place for they know deeply that this is the time window in which we need to act with peace and understanding.
"It is part of our collective remembrance process for humanity in which one day we all will remember the intimate interconnection, interrelation we as people have with Water, with our Land, our Earth and with all Life. Through this we believe we can assist greatly the shift in our predominant current culture from an ownership based to a stewardship based culture, we grow in our collective conscious awareness from having rights to responsibility. True awareness when shared amongst many is curative for old no longer serving habits."
