Nibi Emosaawdang Mkiznan (Water Walker Moccassins) is a homage to Anishinaabe-Kwewak and their protection of our waters.
Ace’s new work Nibi Emosaawadang Mkiznan (Water Walker Moccasins) pays homage to the Water Walk movement that began in 2003 with the late Nookmis Josephine Mandamin from Wiikwemkoong, Manitoulin Island, who traversed Lake Superior on foot while carrying a bucket of water to draw attention to the high levels of contamination of the Great Lakes and all lakes and rivers across Turtle Island. In Anishinaabe traditional teachings, water is cared for and protected by women, and the fight continues for the protection of water through the on-going work of other Anishinaabe-kwewak, including the group Nibi Emosaawdamajig (Those Who Walk for the Water), led by Shirley Williams and her niece Elizabeth Osawamick, and Autumn Peltier, who strives to bring clean drinking water to Indigenous communities across Canada and who addressed the United Nations General Assembly in New York City that was documented in James Burns film following her quest in The Water Walker.
