Women and Water: Stories, teachings, and song
June 19th, 2019

St. Paul's Centre
According to local indigenous teachings, women are the keepers of the water.  We know, too, that water is central to all of us, and we share responsibility for it.
Three influential women - Kim Wheatley, Maude Barlow, and Coco Love Alcorn - are coming to Orillia to help us explore, embrace, and celebrate our relationships with water in the ways they know best: through stories, teachings, and song.
