Karen Women Carrying Water
Saw Kyaw San

This drawing of two Karen women in Burma carrying water in bamboo tubes is a reminder that indigenous people in many countries of our world face growing threats against their way of living, their values and their close connection with the earth. Victims of land-grabbing, war and discrimination, they struggle to keep their communities alive and to carry on the traditions and culture they have practiced for generations. Rather than alienate them from their land, we would do well to learn from their wisdom and experience how to preserve our earth by living in harmony with it and respecting its Creator.

The CJPA web site contains a wide range of grassroots artwork in both written and visual form. This section of the homepage will showcase these efforts of peace on a rotating basis in order to inspire viewers to look deeper into the web site and also encourage viewers to submit their own work.
