“As our elders would remind us, we must remember that each time we nourish our bodies something gave its life for us. When we realize that every sacrifice for life to continue has a shared existence of water at its foundation we begin to understand the beauty of water. Water truly is life, and the reflection of its purity or uncleanliness will tell us whether we are in balance or unbalance in this world.” – Jode Goudy, Former Chairman of Yamaka Nation. Yamaka was the first tribe to join the very important campaign #WhyWeWearRED
