Tiny was born August 26th 1953 in Devils Lake, ND to John B. LittleWind Sr. and Irene M. LittleWind (Sherman). She began her education at The Little Flower Indian Mission and attended various schools throughout North Dakota, South Dakota, and Oklahoma. Tiny was proud to have been a G.E.D graduate then went on to receive her Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work and Criminal Justice from Minot State University. Throughout her life she worked various jobs in Minot, Devils Lake, and Fort Totten, but her passion in life was being a caregiver.
Tiny strongly believed in her Catholic faith and traditions. During her younger years she enjoyed riding horses, barrel racing, listening to records, and visiting her various friends and family. Tiny’s love for The Moccasin game began with her watching her grandparents play, she later hosted a game in memory for her father during Fort Totten Days.
She loved to get up early on the weekends to make it to all the rummage sales and hosting big dinners for her family when everyone would make it home for holidays and birthdays. Most days she would be home reading her true crime books, watching her favorite TV shows, or loving up her great grandsons “Chompy” and “Charlie”. Every chance she could you would be able to find her at The Spirit Lake Casino playing her favorite slot machines and visiting her many relatives and friends. Tiny was a generous and caring woman anytime someone was in need of help she would help; she was very supportive in her community as well.
