Description

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

My people talk of a black snake that will destroy the land, Spoil the water, wreck everything in its path. They foretold that it wouldn't come for many, many years.

Now the black snake is here.

Told from the perspective of a Native American child, this bold and lyrical picture book written by Ojibwe/Metis author Carole Lindstrom and illustrated by Tlingit artist Michaela Goade is a powerful call to action to defend Earth's natural resources-inspired by the Dakota Access Pipeline protests and similar movements led by Indigenous tribes all across North America.

Critic Reviews

An inspiring call to action for all who care about our interconnected planet."-- starred review , Kirkus Reviews " Goade's watercolor illustrations fill the spreads with streaming ribbons of water, cosmic backdrops, and lush natural landscapes.... Lindstrom's spare, poetic text flows with the "river's rhythm." Written in response to the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, famously protested by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe--and others--these pages carry grief, but it is overshadowed by hope in what is an unapologetic call to action." -- starred review , Booklist "Observation is not enough, the book communicates: action is necessary... A passionate call for environmental stewardship." -- starred review , Publishers Weekly "A gorgeous and empowering picture book with an urgent environmental plea." -- starred review, BookPage " Flowing words by Carole Lindstrom and lush art by Michaela Goade appear in immaculate synchronicity on every page of We Are Water Protectors ."-- Shelf Awareness "This book celebrates indigenous-led movements to protect our planet's water.
