Native Sacred Water Ceremony: Quoted...

“The women were asked to bring water [for the ceremony] from the areas they represent and to symbolize how women carry children beneath their heart for nine months in water; the same pure water they drink in rivers, lakes and streams.”
Alma Brooks, respected elder and Maliseet Grand Council member

“The ceremony is powerful; it unites us as one. There are no differences here; we’re here for the water.
- Ron Tremblay, member Maliseet Grand Council, water ceremony drummer

“It was a wonderful ceremony and it was a good thing Alma had a big pot!”
- David Coon, Executive Director, Conservation Council of New Brunswick

“…it’s unusual in western tradition for a ceremony to be dominated by women…The First Nations community reminds me how western culture has turned things on their head in the New World…”
- Janice Harvey, President, New Brunswick Green Party

“I am grateful and honored to be counted among those gathered here in a common cause in protecting and preserving what we have in this province.”
- Armand Paul, Spokesperson, Penniac Anti-Shale Gas Organization

“We’re [Ban Fracking NB website] not looking for just shale gas company SWN to be banned, but all of the natural gas exploration companies and the entire process.”
- Melissa Gallant, Administrator, Ban Fracking NB website

“It’s actually a good thing Bethany Thorne-Dykstra made the decision she did for two reasons: one, people are now coming out of the woodwork who didn’t actually support her…and two, the rest of the other groups don’t have to compromise with her. We can now work for a full ban and not have to consider the moratorium.”
Jim Enberger, Taymouth Community Association

  3. Preppy Lacoste shirts with their green crocodile
    logo are a classic fashion staple. The collection for women combines class and
    a modern style into one. If you wish for a less costly method of advertising, you can opt to
    use cards printed and inserted into every poncho you order.
