Ojibwemowin Revitalization Celebration Pow-wow held in Little Rock - P18
On Wednesday, August 14, 2013, the Ojibwemowin Revitalization Celebration Pow-wow was held at the Little Rock Ball Field.
There they celebrated the Ojibwe language, listened to Ojibwe speakers and honor songs, enjoyed a walleye feast, capped by a community giveaway and games and prizes for the kids.
All Ojibwe speakers and reservation community members were welcome, and there were over 300 in attendance.
The Red Lake Constitution Reform Booth also had on hand flyers and surveys, giving away shirts to those that took part.
Coordinated by Red Lake Economic Development and Planning, a similar event was held in Ponemah on June 26, 2013. Both events were part of revitalizing the Ojibwe language.
