Over the course of one week, dozens of Anishinaabe walkers marched along the Energy East pipeline route to oppose the project and protect the water.
The Water Walk, organized by Grassroots Indigenous Water Defence, covered 125 km along the route of the Energy East pipeline — the largest tar sands pipeline ever proposed which would cross Treaty 3 territory to carry 1.1 million barrels per day of oil to the east coast of Canada, endangering dozens of waterways. Over two dozen walkers started at the Eagle Lake Pow-Wow in Northwestern Ontario, and ended at Shoal Lake in Eastern Manitoba, joined by supporters and allies. The Indigenous grassroots resistance to the Energy East pipeline in Treaty 3 is only the beginning of the growing opposition to the project.
