Wild Rice: Science and Culture Virtual Program

In the migration of the Anishinaabeg to the Western Lake Superior area, it was prophesied that they would reach their final stopping point when they found “the food that grows on water”. Manoomin (wild rice) is a culturally significant resource and important food source that is critical to Ojibwe identity, historically and presently. Darren Vogt, Resource Management Division Director at the 1854 Treaty Authority, will discuss the biology and conservation of this treaty-reserved food staple, as well as the successes of the organization’s longest monitoring program. Traditional harvest of manoomin occurs each season in the 1854 Ceded Territory; and the process of harvesting and finishing wild rice will also be highlighted in this talk. Watch the program recording here:
