Coast Salish Security - Water - Women's Spiritual Strength

Water is Security for Coast Salish Peoples
Water security and respect is much needed by law makers and humans! Water is Security. Water is respected by First Nations; Coast Salish Peoples. Water is Life. Water is Living.

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 - Coast Salish Women Sing and Dance to Water of Coast Salish Territory

Yes yes I believe in your mantra... without women or water there would be no life. Indeed water is a feminine symbol.

Hello Sharon,

Water is life. Women are the custodians of life and without water they will not be able to perform this important duty. Thanks for raising your voice in favour of women in favour of life.

Dear Sharon,

Thank you for writing about this critical moment in Canada. The push for oil pipelines here continues in such an aggressive way. It is the Coast Salish people in the west, the Mi'maq people in the east, the Cree in the centre, the Innu in the north, the Sioux people to the south and so many other Indigenous communities who are carrying this message most strongly, and women like you in these communities have been leading the way. Water is security. You and your community are protecting the water, the whales, the land, the forests, the air. The time is terribly overdue that you be more closely listened to.

With love and respect for all you do,
Tam

Tam, you are the hummingbird, gentle, moving forward, kind, generous, yet, full of life and bring forth much needed knowledge. :) Please help and donate;Native women go missing in North America at an alarming rate! Nobody cares! We seek funding for group consultations, research questionnaire go out to participants, making quilts for a give away for elders that participate; Native women do not have dreams like the rest of Canada, they survive day to day under the Indian Act. Please help, donate! Native Women Matter; they are the foundation of North America.

Thank you sister, from world pulse; I am going to have an Aboriginal Justice Circle calling all Aboriginal Women to come and speak. I hear there is a new Mayor for this town, and its a woman. Its wonderful. Anyway, I will move forward calling for new agreements for housing, justice, health care, child welfare, and employment. Thank you, please donate. I keep moving forward even though there are great barriers. Canada has a way of making us feel good with kind words, but, lacking in initiatives and new agreements to enable Aboriginal Women toward independence. Under the Indian Act native women are "nothing" and invisible. So, we keep moving forward like a purge to the nation; A'HO'...
We need your funding to get this project off the ground: your support is desperately needed for a Voice on Native Women and Issues being faced today in Canada; reconciliation appears to be advancing non-native agencies and services to provide services for native women but the advancement of native women is marginal, please help give native women a voice!
