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.
Yes, it's puppets on the radio! Ojibwe puppets created and from the mind of Michael Lyons. In our first episode we learn the Ojibwe word for coffee and we get to hear the super puppet couple of Nana Boozhoo and Natasha.
