Wild Ricing in Bad River May be Affected After Flood

Tribal Members Haven't Been Able to Go to Ricing Locations

Late Summer in to Fall is Wild Ricing Season, but after the flood, tribal members of the bad river band are concerned if there will be a season this year.

Bad River band members have not been able to get to the wild ricing areas since the flood, and rising levels of water could be detrimental to the crop. Because of that, tribal members are unsure of what state the rice is in.

Bad River Band members say the wild rice in the area is a sacred and special part of their history.
