NorLand Committee Participates In Drum Awakening Ceremony
Earlier this week, a group of managers, estimators and project managers from a majority of NorLand's business units participated in a traditional First Nations' Drum Awakening Ceremony at the LNS office. The drum in question has a Medicine Wheel on its face, designed by David Fierro (Qwel Qwel Minixlp) - a local drum-maker and elder of the Okanagan Nation, Grizzly Bear Clan - and given to NorLand to provide additional means for encouraging togetherness, openness, and recognition in the work its businesses do. David was accompanied by Tamara Goddard - President of Mahigan Research & Development from the Saulteau First Nation - who has worked closely with NorLand over the past several years.
NorLand is grateful to David and Tamara for sharing this special piece of their cultures with it. The drum will be kept in the LNS Boardroom and can be used by anyone working for NorLand's businesses to commence a meeting, calm the mind or celebrate a win.
