FACA October Virtual Program: Dr. Arne Väiniö – Finn/Ojibwe

October 15 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

FACA is excited to have Dr. Arne Väiniö join us on October 15th at 7pm CST. You are welcome to join us at 6:45 for member announcements.

Arne Vainio, M.D. was born to a Finnish father and an Ojibwe mother, one of seven children. When he was four years old, his father committed suicide and poverty followed. He credits less than a double handful of people for changing his course and advises we are all that person for someone who might be lost. He will talk about growing up, mostly on the Ojibwe side, and the awakening of his Finnish side, mostly since Finnfest 2008 and the connections between Finnish and Ojibwe people.

He has an interesting background, from being a lumberjack to receiving multiple awards as for his work as a Physician.
