|~ FOUR MAJOR WATER BLESSING SITES in Washington State
~ Ti’Swaq at Christine Falls (Mt Rainier)
~ Alder Dam Lake
~Tum Tom, Tum-chuck, Tum-wa-ta, and Spa-kwatl. Each word means strong water or water fall. (falls of the Deschutes River at Tumwater)

I have to journey to the East coast and need to leave soon so Creator has offered me an challenge ~ LOL there are NO CHALLENGES ONLY NEW OPPORTUNITIES! So I have decided to grasp this opportunity to GROW this prayer!

The water from these 4 Sacred Sites will then travel cross country with me ~ as I travel I will visit other Sacred Sites and Gather and Bless the Water there! I am looking to gather water from 24 Sacred Sites as I travel. Once I am in Connecticut I will gather my grandchildren and we will journey to Maine. My ancestral homeland!!! We will Carry the Sacred Waters along the Penawahpskewi River (Penobscot River) and do a Marrying of the Waters Ceremony! Connecting the Sacred Sites from West Coast to East Coast!
The theme for the Water is Life Water Walk is the same theme of all the walks, since 2003: “Ni guh Izhi chigay Nibi onji.” (“I will do it for the water.”) Josephine Mandamin decided to walk, and others joined her and others are inspired by her to walk for water. Carole Blodgett is one of those that are inspired and being called to walk the water.
