In this image a child is learning from his mother the sacred teachings of the water ceremony. This teaching is passed on from one generation to the next. In this ceremony a mother teaches the child to give thanks to the water spirit for the life that it provides us. We acknowledge the nourishment that gives life to us, the animals, the plants. These teachings are received from a young age, and we grow up with an awareness of the need to protect our water, for the future of our water is the future of our people.
