There are so many ways to care for the water. Here are some ideas of ways you can join with us.

If you feel called to walk in ceremony for the water, please join us. You can join us for an hour or many days. Please see the information about ceremony protocol.

You can support the water walkers. We rely on grassroots community support. Costs for the upcoming Missouri River walk include the GPS tracker and a floating lodge that we will “walk” down the river by paddling it. We need to raise $40,000 for this nearly two-month-long walk. Nibi Walks is a program of the Indigenous People’s Task Force and all donations are tax-deductible.

To donate by mail send a check made out to the Indigenous People’s Task Force with Nibi Walk in the memo line and mail to

Missouri River Water Walk Wish List – Please contact us before sending donations to confirm items are still needed.

  • First aid supplies – especially for foot care
  • Healthy food, especially organic dried foods, beans, corn, fruits and nuts. Frozen soups are wonderful!
  • Art supplies for documenting community stories
  • Horses – in Montana or North Dakota it would be okay for the women to carry the water on horseback. Who has a horse?
  • An RV to sleep six (26 foot) – we promise to take really good care of it.

Proceeds from purchasing the Nibi Walk River Songs CD also benefit our work for the water. And it is a wonderful way to learn and share our songs. To purchase the CD click on this link, donate $20, enter your address and we will send you a CD.
