Tribe, agencies work to restore wild rice in St. Louis River


DULUTH, Minn. — The Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa is working with several natural resource agencies from Minnesota and Wisconsin to restore culturally significant wild rice to about 250 acres of the St. Louis River estuary.

Minnesota Public Radio reported that decades of human activity, including industrial development and logging, almost eliminated wild rice from the region.

The rice is often used in the tribe’s cultural ceremonies.
