Indian Country Today Media Network’s pow wow kid of the week is four-year-old Ozaawaa Annimikii Morris-Helms, which means “Yellow Thunder” in Ojibwe.
His parents are John Helms and Gretchen Morris, and he is registered with the Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa in Wisconsin.
These photos were taken at the Red Cliff Pow Wow, which was held in July 2014. Ozaawaa was chosen as the Littlest Junior Brave 2014-2015 at the pow wow. His dance style is grass dance, traditional dance, but according to his grandfather Stephen Reynolds, he does a lot of different styles during the pow wows and has been “doing this since he was able to walk.”
