DURING THIS YEAR'S STRAWBERRY MOON *JUNE* WE ARE HONOURING AND BRINGING LIFE TO THE SACRED SITE ASINABKA: WATER AND ISLANDS THAT WE LOVE
An Algonquin Anishinabe Kwe has explained a traditional story, below, and thus initiated a way to celebrate the sacred site, with support from Indigenous men and women, and settler allies.
The strawberry is the fruit that symbolizes love among the Anishinabeg.
It IS Sacred
Algonquin Elders led more than 500 people on an historic It IS Sacred walk June 17. People from all nations and faiths participated and a local NGO, Citizens for Responsible Development Ottawa, produced this dynamic video.
Free Chaudière Falls & Its Islands
Concerned citizens in support of an Indigenous-led vision for the Falls and Islands have been active since the fall of 2014. Visit our website, donate to defray legal costs, and volunteer your time to help make a difference. The time is now.
Remove the 1908 dam
The industrial era responsible for the ring dam at Chaudiere Falls is over, yet Energy Ottawa is desecrating the sacred site to install new turbines. Watch the documentary DamNation and check out the magnificence of this waterfall in old photos.
