Tribes Guide Restoration of Wild Rice in Wisconsin

Many wild rice beds have disappeared due to a development on U.S. Highway 41 in Northeastern Wisconsin, but the Department of Transportation said they will solicit advice from tribal leaders on reinstating the traditional Native American wild rice, reported Channel3000.com.

Gwen Carr, Cayuga Indian and Outreach Coordinator, will speak with tribal chiefs about how to restore wild rice in the area, which includes Winnebago and Brown Counties. The project aims to incorporate traditional, cultural and spiritual aspects that influence the growth and success of wild rice, reported GreenBayPressGazette.com.

The cost of the US 41 Project will total $1.5 billion, said Channel3000.com.
