We Are Water Protectors Artful Stories

The Artful Stories program brings young children together in the Carlos Museum galleries to hear children’s literature related to the collections and exhibitions, look closely at a single work of art together, and then head to the studio for an engaging hands-on activity. 

From the publisher: 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. 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.

Matowacipi Horse (24C), Emory student and intern at the Carlos, reads We Are Water Protectors by Carole Lindstrom, illustrated by Michaela Goade, and published by Roaring Brook Press, in the exhibition Each/Other: Marie Watt and Cannupa Hanska Luger.
