This Saturday, the Forest History Centerin Grand Rapids is hosting a program about wild rice and what it means to the Ojibwe. Tribal attorney Frank Bibeau will discuss from 1-3pm the centuries-long westward migration of the Anishinaabe to the place where the food grows on water, as well as wild rice's sacred place in Ojibwe culture.
In the 19th century treaties with the Federal Government, they retained their right to hunt, fish and gather wild foods in ceded territories across northern Minnesota.
