Sawyer, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Dancers and veterans from across the region will gather next week for the 21st annual Fond du Lac Reservation's Veterans Powwow.

The event has grown into the largest of its kind in the nation, honoring native and non-native Veterans.

The Tribal Veterans Service Officer Chuck Smith has been the director of the powwow for the past six years.

"We are warriors, warriors have always taken care of the communities and the families and we continue that today," Smith said.

It's one of the many ways the Vietnam Veteran is making a difference for his fellow veterans while honoring their service.
