This segment of WTIP's ongoing series "Anishinaabe Way: Lives, Words, and Stories of Ojibwe People" features Milt Powell of the Saganaga Lake Powell family.

WTIP independent producer Staci Drouillard sat down with Milt and his wife Alice last fall. He shares stories about growing up on Saganaga Lake and about his "Grandmother,"  a great Aunt who lived with his family when he was a young child.  Milt will celebrate his 80th birthday this coming September.
