Angels remembered Memorial Day on Lac Courte Oreilles Reserve

by Nick Vander Puy

On Memorial Day on the Lac Courte Oreilles Reserve in northern Wisconsin more than a hundred people shared a feast, sang, and released balloons into the air to commemorate the loss of their children over the past year.

Both a minister and a tribal spiritual leader spoke at the commemoration.

Event organizer LuAnn Columbus describes the day's events.
