More About Niigaani-Gichigami Water Festival
The second annual Niigaani-gichigami (Lake Ontario) Water Festival is a series of events throughout the month of May and June.
The festival culminates with the Niigaani-gichigami Gratitude Walk and Festival. This event is organized by the Niigaani-gichigami Collective, Toronto Urban Native Ministry, and St James Cathedral.
This collaborative effort was put together by a group of Indigenous women and 2 Spirit folk, and allies.
The intention for the festival is to build a network and community thinking/acting on the question- how do we live on the water and build a right-relationship with the waters in our region?
We hope to bring together diverse communities for celebration of the gift of water, lament, learning, and community building through ceremony and song.
