    Week 1 –

    Hello 🙂 My name is Benu Amun-Ra and I have chosen the Great Lakes Wild Rice. What attracted me to this grain is its significance in the shaping of the Ojibwe (Anishinabe-Chippewa) tribal peoples culture.

    Fun fact: Scientific name – zizania aquatica. Wild rice is called Manoomin by the Anishinaabe people, which means “good berry”. It is considered a sacred plant in tribal culture because of its ties to their traditional migration stories.
