Water is highly respected in Indigenous culture and really is the best choice when you want something to drink.

Did you know that half of your body is made of water? That’s why water is very important for life, so make sure you drink enough if it. In Indigenous cultures water is one of the four elements, earth, wind, water and fire. If you don’t have clean safe drinking water to choose – look for a drink with the lowest amount of sugar, and the most healthy in terms of nutrition.
