Dr. Robert Powless Memorial Event
Date: October 1, 2022
Time: 12:00 p.m.
Location: Gichi Ode' Akiing Park on 214 East Superior Street, Duluth, MN
Dr. Robert Powless (Oneida Nation tribal member) was one of AICHO’s biggest supporters. He strongly advocated and even gave his own money to make sure Gimajii Mino Bimaadizimin would be a reality. His family is having a Celebration of Life Ceremony on Oct. 1 at noon at Gichi Ode Akiing Park.
The last two years of his life, he would sit at the table in the Gimaajii Lobby and visit with children, family members and staff a couple days week.
Our arts gallery/events center is named after him, and about 5 years ago we held an honoring ceremony for him in the Gimaajii Gym. Hundreds of people attended.
