We lost a fluent Ojibwe speaker in Larry Smallwood

We lost another fluent Ojibwe speaker in Amik O’Gaabaw, Larry Smallwood, on April 11, 2017.
Amik has forever been the emcee at powwows and other events and his voice and his sense of humor were familiar to anyone traveling the powwow circuit. When they heard his voice they knew they could call this place home, even if only for a little while. Skinny leg jeans, a Harley-Davidson jacket, cowboy boots, dark glasses and a cowboy hat worked to make him one of the coolest Indians anywhere.
