Processing Wild Rice (Manoomin) the Sustainable Way
The Chippewa Nation has been processing wild rice, also known as “manoomin,” in a traditional and sustainable way for generations. Learn the steps of this process and how buying sustainably harvested rice supports indigenous families, Great Lakes communities and sustainable agriculture.
“Harvest” carries the reader on an eye-opening and transformational journey across the length and breadth of America. Part travelogue and part treatise, this book reminds us how our lives are, and always will be, connected to farms.
