Maliseet Grand Council Sacred Water Ceremony

About 200 people were in attendance today at the sacred water ceremony on the old Native burial grounds near government house in Fredericton. Although organized by the local Maliseet Grand Council, First Nations from all across North America were on hand at the event. Also present were French and English peoples young and old, environmentalists, band councilors, and the plain curious. The ceremony gave thanks to Mother Earth for providing her water to sustain human life. It also allowed people the opportunity to voice their concerns about the effects of industry on nature, especially the burgeoning shale gas industry in New Brunswick. The Purple Violet Press will have more to come on the ceremony over the next few days. For now, we've posted the images below for a sampling of the goings-on at the ceremony.
