Editor’s Introduction

The Power of Water, Ceremony, and Justice

How does Mother Earth speak in the late summer? Meditating on this question, I saw water. Big water. Powerful water. The ocean and rivers. Swirling, warm-water storms and thundering rains—and human voices to match. I heard cries and chanting in the heat of the climate crisis. I also heard soothing voices, maternal voices of care for all beings, welling up with the waters of emotion and release.

In this issue, we center the images and voices of power as expressed for, through, and alongside water. We center the power of water itself and the power and wisdom of those fighting for the protection of water. We center the wise elders, who, like water, surround us with wisdom and emotional care.

I am thrilled to have the opportunity to share the works of this issue’s featured contributors, including climate justice advocates Niria Alicia and Dr. Virginia Necochea, who share their testimonios through words, song, and ceremony; beloved elder Cuauhtli Cihuatl (Maestra CC), who shares a water ritual for releasing grief; and artist-activist Suzy González, who reminds us that “art is not neutral.” I’m also grateful to authors Erika Buenaflor and Marisol Quevedo Rerucha, who have shared excerpts from their recent books. Please read, share, and support their work. I express gratitude for every one of the contributors, for their gifts of creativity, and for the wisdom they openly offer. May you find strength in their words, and may you recognize your own power, especially in the care you offer to the earth.
