2011 Nibi & Manoomin: Bridging Worldviews Symposium

This conference is free to all tribal community members and tribal entities.

This symposium builds on work begun two years ago between tribal communities and the University of Minnesota. The first symposium (2009) brought researchers\ from the University together with tribal elders from across northern Minnesota. It offered an opportunity to share knowledge about manoomin and build a better

understanding between native knowledge holders and University researchers on wild rice in a good way.

That initial gathering was very powerful and long overdue. One outcome of the symposium was a request by tribal members in attendance for more opportunities to share stories, research, and learning and build trust so that wild rice is appreciated as a sacred gift from the creator by us all--this second symposium honors that request. Another outcome of the initial meeting was to draft a wild rice white paper. This paper would identify issues where University and tribal interests could begin to engage in meaningful dialogue on wild rice research conducted at the University and offer recommendations for action.

The draft Wild Rice White Paper was completed and submitted in May 2011 to the tribal leaders of the seven Anishinaabe reservations for their review, comments and recommendations, and will be presented to the University of Minnesota.
