Recent Events with Vincent
Something that means a lot to Vincent is Ogijiita Pimatiswin Kinamatwin (O.P.K)—Ogijiita is the young warrior; Pimatiswin means “good life”; Kinamatwin means moving forward in that good life. Mitch Bourbonniere extended an invitation for Vincent to become part of the O.P.K that helps support marginalized, at-risk, Indigenous young adults and their families. Vincent has been passionately involved in feeding the homeless, delivering over 200 food hampers to Winnipeg homes during the Christmas season and providing clothing to those in need. This has become one of the ways for Vincent to give back to the communities and to the people who have supported him in his own journey. Vincent cannot express the honour he felt when presented with an O.P.K vest, which he proudly wears. His native spirit name is Red Wolf Man.
Gang Action Interagency Network (G.A.I.N.) works on grassroots solutions to gang problems in Winnipeg to prevent youth from joining gangs and to help youths get out of gangs. Vincent readily accepted an offer with G.A.I.N., for which he did his very first presentation, and it was to the Congolese Community of Manitoba.
I always remember where I came from. I will always acknowledge and remember the people who gave of themselves to help me get where I am today. I know I couldn’t have done it without their inspiration and belief in me. It is important for me to never forget them. Now I know more clearly what I want out of my life, and I want to do things properly to get there.
