Water is Security - Water is Life
Please help us secure the future of Life! Say no to the pipeline!

Coast Salish Women are from a Territory known as the Salmon Peoples Territory

Water is important to "life" and "women" are important to "life"...without women or water, there would be no life.

For the safety and future security, the Waters of Coast Salish Territory must be protected from the Black Snake; aka the Pipe Line.

Water is a feminine symbol and Coast Salish Women are the Protectors of Water. 

Future Security is Water and Women of Coast Salish Territory

Yes, water is life, and without water there is no life. We have to protect it now before its too late. We do not have the salmon runs like we use to 20 years ago. its desperate times today. Our oyster beds, clams, crab are disappearing too. Our salmon runs are slowing down. Cannot feed our peoples with sick fish, and they are using farms to produce fish today, but its not the same. Farmed fish is sick when they are dumped into our waters. Its time to respect and protect. :)
