Water Teachings: New e-book

Excited to announce we have just launched our new portal: waterteachings.com. Water Teachings presents teachings from scholars and community members who are working to protect and honour the water. This is a collaborative e-book project co-edited by Courtenay Crane and Karen Bakker; Courtenay began this project as the Media Manager for the Decolonizing Water Project at UBC (and is now the Director of Media and Communications for the First Nations Housing and Infrastructure Council of BC).

We are extremely grateful to the many Indigenous community members who shared their teachings with us and for the important work that they do. Chi miigwetch.

Bio: Courtenay is Anishinaabekwe, a member of the Key First Nation, in Treaty 4 territory in Saskatchewan; she has a degree in First Nations and Indigenous Studies and Geography from UBC and a diploma in Film Production from Vancouver Film School.
