WALT BRESSETTE (Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, WI)
Recalling some of the stories I had heard was the very long migration of our people over…God knows how long — a half a millennia maybe longer.  During that time, there were teaching and there were instructions, and there were failings. One of the prophecies was that you’ll know where to stop when you find where the food grows on water. And that, of course, we all come to know as wild rice.
