Wild rice, or manoomin, is still harvested the traditional way by the Anishanabe, or Ojibwe people of the Great Lakes Region. Ricers and their families take canoes in the rice fields and hand harvest the rice. After participating in the rice harvest, Loretta helps to prepare Winona LaDuke’s favorite wild rice and maple syrup cake which accompanies a lakeside first rice feast of buffalo, wild rice and cranberry stuffed acorn squash, buffalo stew and beautiful ruby red swamp tea.
