'Manoominike: Gathering the Good Seed' takes up wild rice

Ojibwe wild rice and treaty rights are the subject of "Manoominike: Gathering the Good Seed," a one-hour radio documentary.

Nick Vander Puy produced the documentary. It features interviews with Fred Ackley Jr.., an elder and judge from the Sokaogon Chippewa Community, and Tom Vennum Jr., the author of a book about wild rice.

Vander Puy was one of the few non-Indians who supported Ojibwe treaty rights in the 1980s. He hopes his documentary improves understanding and encourages protection of wild rice.
