The Water Walker tells the story of an Ojibwe grandmother (Nokomis) named Josephine who loves Nibi (water). She raises awareness of the need to protect Nibi for future generations by walking all around the Great Lakes and from the four salt waters (oceans) to Lake Superior with the Mother Earth Water Walkers. In the story, written by Joanne Robertson, she encourages everyone to take responsibility to protect Nibi, the giver of life by asking, "What will you do for the water?"
