We Are Water Protectors

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

When a black snake threatens to destroy the Earth and poison her people's water, one young water protector takes a stand to defend Earth's most sacred resource. Her courage reminds all readers that "we are all related" and that when we all work together, we can achieve incredible things.

Inspired by the many Indigenous-led movements across North America, We Are Water Protectors issues an urgent rallying cry to safeguard the Earth's water from harm and corruption in this bold and lyrical picture book written by Carole Lindstrom, who is Ojibwe, and vibrantly illustrated by Michaela Goade, who is Tlingit and Haida. It's an empowering reminder that we all can be stewards of our planet; we are all water protectors.

"Observation is not enough, the book communicates: action is necessary. And the girl doesn’t just participate in protest; she stands at the front, carrying a feather in one hand, as other protestors answer her call. 'We are water protectors. WE STAND!' An author’s note traces the story’s genesis to the 2016 Standing Rock protests in the Dakotas. A passionate call for environmental stewardship." — Publishers Weekly
