Indigenous peoples have deep relationships with water. Many nations have creation and migrations stories stemming from floods, and practice water ceremonies with varied teachings. Human bodies are made up of mostly water; water is life because we are water! These activities work to enhance our relationships with water, and to consider water’s relationships with humans and more-than-human relations.
