A brief look at the use of wild rice among Indians
Indian use of wild rice
As a staple food and item of trade for many Indians in the upper Midwest, wild rice was frequently mentioned in the journals and letters of early white explorers. Anthropologist Gardner P. Stickney describes here the cultivation and use of wild rice among Indians, primarily the Ojibwe, referencing passages from the writings of Radisson, Carver, Ojibwe William Warren, and others.
