“Mni Wiconi.” It means, “Water is Life.” These powerful words arose from the vision of Indigenous Youth at Standing Rock in North Dakota, and they stand strongly for the growing spirit of our time. The spirit of Mni Wiconi says: “Life is not possible without water. Therefore, it is the right of all life to have water that is safe, clean, and nourishing.” Water is Life has become a cry for unity, among people of all continents and nations, to protect and restore all that is Sacred and life-giving in our world.
Let us come together and make waves of “The Song For The Ocean”, and stand up for the ocean and our Earth through new action this month with Kristin Hoffmann a world-renowned activist singer and Evolutionary Leader. Open your hearts and listen to the call and share far and wide.
There is an ancient proverb that says:
“We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors. We borrow it from our children.”
This is the growing Spirit of Standing Rock, and this is the spirit of Water is Life! Protect the Sacred through April Earth Week growing into Earth Month April 5th through April 30th. Join us with the International Golden Rule Day April 5th through a special 24-hour Online Event as we kick off the April Compassion Games month.

April Compassion Games, Earth Month is grounded in appreciation and respect of one’s local bioregion, honoring Indigenous leadership and practices in how best to care for Mother Earth while acknowledging our human place in the web of life. Earth Month is a way to explore how we can be compassionate toward the Earth, and act in ways to discover compassion for ourselves, each other, and all members of the Earth Community.
Earth Month includes Earth Day April 22nd, an annual event to support environmental protection. Check out this Global Clean Up on Earth Day lead by Earth Day Network. This is a great example of what to do during Earth Month. Check out the Compassion Report Map for examples of action and service coming from coming around the world.
