"Enji-Tibew’eseng Nibi Nikwejiwong" is an Anishinaabe Ceremonial Water Walk to form connections with the Water (Nibi Nikwejiwong - Junction Creek). As the Water Walkers carry Nibi Nikwejiwong, the movement will recognize ancestral Anishinaabe uses of the creek as a water highway, the significance of the waterway for the Greater Sudbury area, and the inherent connection to the Great Lakes. The Water is a unifying force that brings people together because what happens to the Water happens to us all. The movement also generates the opportunity for active truth and reconciliation not just from non-Indigenous people to Indigenous people, but for all people to reconcile our negligence and improve our relationships with the Waters, Lands, and all of Creation.
Nêhiyaw (Plains Cree) Mide-Kwe Water Walker Tasha Beeds will be conducting a series of Water Walks for a recovering body of Water known as Nibi Nikwejiwong or Junction Creek. Her first Ceremonial Water Walk will take place in June 2021, carrying Nibi (the Water) while walking 135 km from the headwaters in Garson, Sudbury to where the waterway joins into Lake Huron in Spanish, ON. Due to COVID-19 restrictions the walk will not be open to the public.
