'Manoominike: Gathering the Good Seed' takes up wild rice
Posted: Thursday, May 5, 2011
Ojibwe wild rice and treaty rights are the subject of "Manoominike: Gathering the Good Seed," a one-hour radio documentary.
Nick Vander Puy produced the documentary. It features interviews with Fred Ackley Jr.., an elder and judge from the Sokaogon Chippewa Community
, and Tom Vennum Jr., the author of a book about wild rice.
Vander Puy was one of the few non-Indians who supported Ojibwe treaty rights in the 1980s. He hopes his documentary improves understanding and encourages protection of wild rice.
