The Round House / Randall Lafournais
Randall Lafournais is the older brother of Cappy and oldest son of Doe Lafournais. He organises sweat lodge ceremonies and is very knowledgeable about traditional Ojibwe culture and healing ceremonies. White girls are very interested in Randall due to his mysticism and his friends make fun of him about it and start calling him Birkenstock.
In late summer, Randall is one of the men who go up to Linden’s place to beat him up and telling him to stay away from the reservation.
Twelve years later, Randall helps his friend Landreaux getting through the trauma of having accidentally shot the son of his best friend, Peter. By then, Randall has become the medicine man of the community, an authoritative figure.
