The wild-rice harvest in Minnesota is wrapping up an exceptionally good year despite threats to its future. Comments from Jeff Savage, director, Fond du Lac Cultural Center and Museum.
The 2017 rice season will go down as one of the state’s best in a long time, with ricers pulling in as many as 300 pounds a day.
Jeff Savage is an elder with the Fond du Lac Band of Ojibwe. He says although wild rice is plentiful, there are fewer lakes where it can be found.
“Wild rice cannot grow in polluted waters,” he says. “I’ve been harvesting wild rice for 53 consecutive years now, and in my lifetime I have seen many of our wild rice beds have disappeared.”
