The Wild Ricing Moon and Boozhoo Nana Boozhoo

Michael Lyons

Today on the Wednesday Morning Show we heard about the ecology of wild rice during our local food segment....Maggie and Katie talked with Annette Dray Drewes - she is a Clean Water Watershed Specialist for the MN DNR.

We also learned some Ojibwe language today with our puppet friends Nana Boozhoo and Natasha.  These new contributors come from the creativity of Bemidji writer, musician and comic book writer Michael Lyons.  Mahnoominike Giizis is the wild rice moon - or the moon in August.
