Tashia Hart is putting together a cookbook featuring manoomin (wild rice) and other wild foods of Minnesota. This will be published by the Minnesota Historical Society Press in the fall of 2021. I like to cook and she asked me for my manoomin recipe. At first I was honored she asked me, then I was worried because it’s such a simple recipe and I wanted it to be fancier somehow.

On January 25, 2019, a 28-story high tailings dam in Brumadinho, in southeastern Brazil failed, releasing almost 3 billion gallons of sludgy mine waste. The spill flooded nearby homes, submerging cars and buses under a river of reddish-brown sludge. The death toll so far has risen to 228 with an estimated 49 people still missing and presumed dead. This is Brazil’s deadliest-ever mining accident.

Thirty years ago, Anishinaabe teacher, Maryellen Baker, had a dream in which she was called to help to spread the Anishinaabe teachings with others. Her work began with creating a center for wellness, and has become more urgent as all of us have witnessed the pollution of the waters. Water is life, and it is the role of women to protect and bless the water, and the role of men to support women in that work. This site is where you can find the 2019 - 24 Hour Broadcast of Music and Video on Saturday June 1st, 2019 in support of the 2019 Women and Water Coming Together Symposium for 2019.
