The Ojibwa were one of the tribes that interacted with French trappers and others in eastern USA and Canada. Wild rice - Manoomin - was an important part of their diets and became a favorite of European settlers as well. This is a way of preparing wild rice as described by an Ojibwa elder "a long time ago". Taken from the cookbook published by the Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Ojibwa, called "JIIBAAKWEYANG - We are Cooking Together"
