Hello from Chicago - I am Dr. Lora Chamberlain with Frack Free Illinois and we, water protectors in Chicago, would so like to watch a live stream of this symposium. We are intensely concerned about Line 5 as well. So anything you can do to live stream or video the conversations on May 19th would be so appreciated. Migwech.

A full list of speakers will be released next week. But we will share a couple now so we can start creating the buzz! Aaron Payment, Sault Ste. Marie Tribal Chairman will be speaking and Yousef Rabhi, MI State Representative will be speaking. About a dozen more to be announced in the coming week. Stay tuned.

Need a Q& A session with the DEQ on the Water Assessment Withdrawal tool!
GTB Official- Protectors of Mother Earth
-- 24/04/2017 13:18
The Tribes have had numerous discussions/ consultations with DEQ regarding the tool. What specific question needs answering?
Jannan J. Cornstalk
-- 24/04/2017 13:18
There may be PPL at Water Symposium who know nothing about it? Why does it exist? When did it come into existence? Why do we need to know what this is and what it does? I KNOW, general public or tribal people HaAVE NO idea.
Jannan J. Cornstalk
-- 24/04/2017 13:18
Informational is needed... ask Linda Woods, Eva Petoskey or Dorene Delores Wonegeshik if they know what this is what it does why it exists and what we can do about it.... they are Elders from GTB and Water Warriors...
Jannan J. Cornstalk

In Tulsa, Oklahoma at the BOK Center. November 25th, 2016. Over 400 Water Protesters, Land Defenders, Humanitarians, & supporters rallied together(without permits). Then, Peacefully we marched through seven city blocks downtown Tulsa to the front door of The Bank of America, (without permits). In the spirit of taking direct action, I went inside and asked for a supervisor to speak with. I was informed there was no supervision at this multi million dollar FDIC Bank. 5hr, 27 police cars, 10 brothers and sisters sitting on the bank floor lobby, 400 people outside singing, 4 News crews, 6 bank accounts closed, 1 attorney that was just passing by volunteered to represent all sitting in the bank later. We all went home feeling a taste of, Freedom for our future. Brother Kevin, Iriwah Turahe, Nawa! ✨

About a mile if thick black sand in Benton Harbor today. I am not sure what it is. Looks like oil. Rocky Gap County Park. It was not there last month.

Update! Not oil, some sort of iron slag. The water is pushing it out, so nature is doing her job!!

I live locally, so am asking for others. Would be great if other places of lodging would offer a special price for folks driving long distances to attend the symposium. There are also the various camping choices available for those who love camping.

Superb Desmond L. Berry, our water is in a state of emergency in so many areas, and on so many levels, Nestle, Enbridge Line 5, the Water Withdrawal Assessment tool used by the State of Michigan needs to be eliminated and have tribes at the table for consultations. Not sure if we were when it was originally formulated or passed as something proposed for water withdrawal from a Water aquifer or area. Can't imagine any tribe would support or co-sign legislation or the formulation of this absurd tool! I am for challenging how and why the Water Withdrawal Assessment tool is administered or for it to be eliminated altogether. Tribes need to be at the table to make this happen. With Flint and Detroit water issues to boot are more confirming evidence that our water is in a state of emergency and needs to be here for my grandchildrens, grandchildrens grandchildren. Miigwech for your diligence. I would encourage having a youth panel at your event as well. We need to hear from them and it is urgent that we need them to express their concerns and encourage them to connect with the land and water NOW! At the flotilla/Pipe Out Paddle Protest I asked youth to speak and it was really powerful!!miigwech.
Desmond L. Berry

Miigwech for your insight Sister. I wholeheartedly agree with your perspective. We will be having Youth Speakers at our event as well.
