Anishinaabe Wild Rice Experience is a family operated business that provides an authentic cultural hands-on activity for learners who want to experience harvesting and processing wild rice in a traditional and contemporary setting. The Friday Family can trace their harvesting of wild rice from Whitefish Lake several generations and want to share this traditional way of life of harvesting wild rice.
MISSION STATEMENT: to preserve a traditional way of life of the Ojibway peoples and to share and teach others how to harvest wild rice.
Wild Rice is considered a traditional food of the Aboriginal Peoples and is a nutritious high valued protein plant food. It is a tall aquatic grass that naturally grows in shallow waters in small lakes. This natural food is ready to be picked late August.
