Images of Ojibwe harvesting wild rice

Wild Rice Harvesting

Wild rice has been an important food and commodity to Native Americans, particularly the Ojibwe and Menominee, for hundreds of years. Women play a vital role in the harvesting, hulling, roasting, and cooking of wild rice. In these images, an Ojibwe couple harvests rice and in the second, two women hull and roast it.
