Explore the new interactive exhibit “We Are Water MN” during an opening celebration highlighting wild rice and how it is impacted by water at the Mille Lacs Indian Museum in Onamia. Head to the lakeshore between 12-3 p.m. to watch museum staff process wild rice, including drying, parching, threshing and winnowing the rice. See the entire process from raw material to the finished product during 20-minute demonstrations. Plus, sample wild rice dishes, take a canoe ride and enjoy a day at the lake.
