Our journey begins when Creator breathes the spirit of life into us. The spirit is the one that motivates all that life in this great circle. We are a spirit on a physical journey, until our last breath.

Life is a gift and we honour that gift of tobacco.

All life has a spirit. It is the wind, earth, fire, the water, all of those things that are alive with energy and movement. When we talk about life we are talking about our spirit, and give thanks for them These things we cannot exist.

We begin our day with the act of thanks, with a little bit of tobacco and gently placing it in a place near a tree a rock. When we do this we are giving thanks. We are humbling ourselves to creation and being grateful for the breath of life once more.

Operation Innovation Graduate Highlight

In the spirit of fostering meaningful connections and creating pathways for success, we are proud to share a heartwarming success story from ORIGIN’s Operation Innovation 2.0 project.

Kirkland’s journey is a testament to resilience and determination. As a single parent, he faced numerous life challenges but remained steadfast in his pursuit of a better future.

Earning my certifications in heavy equipment operations has opened up new opportunities for me, and I’m proud to be setting an example for my community. Walking this path has shown me that we can overcome challenges and create a better future for ourselves and those who follow.

Kirkland’s story is a remarkable example of walking the good path and understanding the significance of leaving footprints for others to follow.
