    “Water is the seed of life. As rain drops on Mother Earth, she gives birth to rainbows. Our creation story tells of our people crossing over on a rainbow bridge. The birth right of our children depends on a healthy environment and water is the lifeline of our earth. We must enforce our water laws. Right now, we are growing strawberries, grass, grapes … wasting water on plants we don’t need. We need to go back to our native habitat to remind us our connection to life.”
