Native Americans Flourishing in a Bicultural World

Dr. Alton “Sonny” Smart is an Anishinabe educator who occupies many roles in native and non-native communities.  He is first and foremost a father, husband, son, uncle, and grandson.  He is a tribal judge; a social work professor at UW-Stevens Point; a United States Army (Airborne) Vietnam veteran; he holds positions on Ojibwa ceremonial Big Drum and Midewiwin medicine societies.  He is a member of the River Band of Chippewa of Wisconsin, where he was born into the Fish Clan.  His spiritual names are Ozaawaa Na Quad and later a Menominee tribal name of Notnowgiishick, bestowed when he was adopted into the Menominee tribe.
