Water is the first medicine. It affects and connects us all… When a “black snake”, the Dakota Access Pipeline, threatens to destroy the Earth and poison her people’s water, one young water protector takes a stand to defend Earth’s most sacred resource.
Inspired by the many Indigenous-led movements across North America, We Are Water Protectors is a bold and lyrical picture book that issues an urgent rallying cry to safeguard earth’s water from harm and corruption.
Written by Carole Lindstrom, Illustrated by Michaela Goade.
