Water Is Life

“TMni Wiconi, Lakota for “Water is Life,” gained popularity in recent years as Indigenous peoples began protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline, aka the black snake threatening to poison sacred lands. However, Water has always been sacred, especially here, to everyone inhabiting this Duwamish territory.”
