Full Moon Peace Walk in Minnesota

By Susu Jeffrey

We were in peace, at peace, being peace watching the full moon eclipse roll slowly from light, to dark, back to light on Sunday 9/27 night of Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions at sacred Coldwater Springs in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Coldwater is a 10,000 year old spring, a place sacred to the Dakota oyate (people/nation), and the site of the first Euro-American settlement in Minnesota.

Coldwater was a military-industrial water source for the fort above the confluence of the Mississippi and Minnesota rivers from 1820-1920, a park, then a Cold War research campus from 1950-90, and currently a bluff top park clear cut, flattened and planted into a prairie oak savanna park. Each development around this last natural spring in our county has reduced the flow of this still potable water.

We drank the water, we shared the water with the earth around us, and anointed each other’s foreheads with the water.
