wild rice

Wild rice, or mahnoomin, has been growing in the Great Lakes area as long as historical records show. The natural area for its growth includes most of modern-day Northeast Minnesota, Northwest Wisconsin, and portions of Ontario. The Dakota and Ojibwe people have been harvesting wild rice from lakes and rivers for many centuries, and it remains an important traditional food source. In the 20th century, wild rice has also become a farm crop.
