“…And then he talked about how tobacco has a spirit and that if you want to change your relationship with the spirit of tobacco ask it for help. He said to me, that one must go into the bush in the silence and make an offering to the tobacco spirit and ask for help to quit using tobacco in a non-traditional way. Offerings are good and they do help.” – Elder Elsie Sanderson
