This workshop will walk participants through some of the history of manoomin (wild rice) in Michi Saagig Nishinaabeg territory, the science behind the ecosystems it supports and information about how manoomin is harvested.
As you may know, all TRACKS workshops combine Indigenous Science and Western Science within an environmental context. All online workshops will relate to the natural world and encourage kids to think about their responsibilities to the land.
With each workshop, we will also offer add-on activities for classes/families/groups that wish to take the learning further.
Length: 45 - 60 minutes
This workshop is best suited for grades 4-8. However, if requested, we are able to adapt most workshops for other age groups.
