Chippewa Tribes To Challenge Rights To Off-Reservation Ricing


MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Wild rice is, without question, the most culturally-important food to Minnesota’s Native American people.

Wild rice that is growing on pristine northern lakes is now in season. It is an annual activity that can be harvested by anyone, assuming they purchase the $15-per-day or $25-per-season license.

“Ricing in Minnesota is a licensed activity and it’s regulated not only through a license, but there’s also other harvest regulations that need to be followed,” the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ Lt. Col. Rodmen Smith said.
