Ojibwe Elder , Sharon Day has begun a spiritual journey walking the length of the Mississippi River “to call attention to water quality issues for all of Mother Earth’s waters.” Sharon began her walk on March 1st at the beginning of the Mississippi River. She is carrying a copper pale of water from Lake Itasca, Minnesota at the headwaters of the Mississippi to the mouth in south Louisiana. Sharon will carry the bucket of clean water from the origin of the Mississippi until she mixes it back into the river some 1,200 miles from the start.
