Anishinaabe elders of the White Earth Nation recognize that the health and well-being of
Nibi (water) and Manoomin (wild rice)
must be managed in ways that blend western science and traditional knowledge.
This project emerged as a call to their concerns.
The Nibi Manoomin Preservation Project provides an educational experience for White Earth Tribal College students in field research science with a focus on Nibi and Manoomin on the lands of the White Earth Reservation.
The Nibi Manoomin Preservation Project
