Picture Book: We Are Water Protectors

I’ve been doing lots of learning and thinking about climate justice recently. I’ve also been revisiting the amazing book Braiding Sweetgrass in order to deepen my awareness about Indigenous ways of thinking in science. During this work, I stumbled on the incredible picture book- We Are Water Protectors and I wanted to make everyone aware of this powerful work of art… this new classic picture book.

We Are Water Protectors is written by Carole Lindstrom and illustrated beautifully by Michaela Goade. The book is inspired by true events and tells the story of Indigenous peoples and their work to stand up for and protect the water of the Earth. I can’t say enough about the illustrations and the powerful images that show the connection between Indigenous peoples and the water and the land. If I was back in the classroom I would find any reason to use this book with students.

Water is the first medicine.
It affects and connects us all . . .

Below is a YouTube video of Carole Lindstrom reading the book aloud. Enjoy.
