Honoring the water of earth who all life depends on. Started in 2008 with an elder of the Lakota Nation who visited Florida.
A selection of speakers includes the River Keepers of St. Johns, Matanzas, St. Mary’s speaking about their connection to the rivers in Florida. Representatives of the Sante Fe and the Florida aquifer will also offer inspirational words.
