How to use the Ojibwe People's Dictionary

Warren Leech Lake ricing

Originally published in 1885.
...the size of Leech Lake, and its great importance to the Indian can be judged by its numerous natural resources. It abounds in wild rice in large quantities, of which the Indian women gather sufficient for the winter consumption of their families.
William Warren, History of the Ojibway People, ed. Theresa Schenck (St. Paul: Minnesota Historical Society Press, 2009), 186.
