Soup Singing to Stop Line 3
Soup Singing is a ritual that connects people virtually and joyfully in their home kitchens to prepare soup and sing for Water. It is a grounding practice where we co-create collective nourishment, honor Water and Indigenous treaty rights, connect with our growing community, and inspire courage to resist the Line 3 tar sands pipeline project.
On Wednesday, May 26, our Soup Sing will feature Taysha Martineau, Anishinaabe water protector and founder of Camp Migizi, one of the Line 3 resistance camps. We will also learn original songs from Sarina Partridge and hear Mayyadda Major perform her song, Mississippi!
While our soups simmer, we’ll talk about how to show up in solidarity with Anishinaabe people exercising their treaty rights. We will also hold breakout rooms for affinity groups and communities of practice to connect together in preparation for the Treaty People Gathering: Rise, Protect, Stop Line 3 on June 5-8 in northern Minnesota.
- Prep: Though not required, you are heartily encouraged to prepare soup during our time together. Ideally, it’s a favorite recipe that you know how to make and doesn’t require much attention or thought!
- 5:30 pm: While we learn songs together, you can be preparing your ingredients and getting your soup on the stove to simmer.
- 6:30 pm: We will transition to a presentation on 1855 treaty rights and the upcoming Treaty People Gathering and then divide into breakout groups. If you aren’t able to join for the first hour of singing and soup-making, you are welcome to come online at 6:30!
Although the event is free, please consider making a donation in direct support of Camp Migizi. Details will be provided when you RSVP. Thank you for supporting Indigenous-led resistance to Line 3!
