VIRTUAL EVENT: 1854 Ceded Territory Climate Change Adaptation Planning

As the climate changes and seasonal patterns shift, the exercise of treaty rights and other life-ways becomes threatened. Our finned, winged, and 4-legged relatives feel those pressures too.

Building resilience to changing climate conditions is a process not an outcome. None of us are alone in this endeavor. It takes strong multi-disciplinary, multi-sector, multi-organization collaboration, partnerships, and trusting relationships to continue to ADAPT as conditions change. Join us and #BeResilient

  • The 1854 Board of Directors approved extending teh treaty daily ricing hours to 5pm!

As Manoominike-giizis gets underway, please remember that the harvest of unripe, green rice is unlawful. Please be safe as you head to the field to harvest - consider taking a kid along and show them the ropes, and pass the skills and traditions on.

Manoomin Season 2023

The 2023 manoomin season opened Tuesday August 15th, 2023, on 1854 Ceded Territory rice waters... but don't always trust the date on the calendar: It is the responsibility of the harvester to determine when the manoomin is ripe and ready for harvest. It is unlawful to harvest green or unripe rice, and can be grounds for citation. 

Get a head's up on what the rice is looking like on a handful of lakes by checking the Wild Rice Condition Updates on 1854's website. Good luck to all you ricers out there!
