The following clip is from one of the scouting trips the author took with her dad to look at rice beds in late August, 2019 in north central Minnesota.
During the research process for The Manoomin Cookbook, the author conducted interviews with elders and knowledge keepers. Here is a wonderful clip from an interview with Fond du Lac (Anishinaabe) elder, artist, curator, educator, and consultant, Wendy Savage.
The Manoomin Book had help with funding from the Tiwahe Foundation & an Oyate Leadership Grant in 2019.
