Brandon Ahmicasaube Smith has a vision for the present and future of Native American youth.
Brandon grew up as a member of the Northport Indian UMC and had positive experiences as a youth participating in camp meetings held at the Northport Indian campgrounds. Now Creator is calling him to pay it forward and lead a ‘Spirit Journey’ with our Native youth toward a better future.
Currently Northport Indian UMC is providing the use of our campgrounds in support of Brandon’s vision.
Spirit Journey is a non-profit organization that empowers Native American youth to reach their potential….emotionally, mentally, spiritually and physically by offering comprehensive programs throughout the year.
Spirit Journey, under Brandon’s guidance, is committed to inspire and empower Native American youth to live healthy Anishnaabe lifestyles, building self-esteem and respect for all.
Spirit Journey is a separate organization from the Northport Indian UMC and is not under the leadership of our church. All programs and activities are done under the supervision and liability of Spirit Journey, Inc.
