Students gathered wild rice in groups at local state lake most of Saturday and Sunday. Local elders shared “how to” tips and enjoyed gathering rice with manoomin students. A wild rice camp was set up at Perch Lake. Jim Northrum Jr. shared his stories and technical information of how Ojibwe people have gathered and prepared wild rice gained from his relatives talking with him as a young one and his experiences as an adult.
