Cultivating Tradition: Planning the Wild Rice Processing Facility with EDA Assistance

Join us at the heart of our cultural revival at the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe. We're in the planning stages for a modern Wild Rice Processing Facility, blending tradition with efficiency, and made possible with assistance from the Economic Development Administration (EDA).

Sustainable Harvesting Hub in the Making

Beyond a processing center, our facility is planned as a hub for sustainable wild rice harvesting. We're creating a space that respects our cultural ties to the land while ensuring quality and sustainability, with support from the EDA during the planning phase.

Economic Independence in Progress

This project is about more than planning—it's about jobs and economic empowerment. With assistance from the EDA, we're cultivating a self-sustaining economy within our community, supporting local growers, and creating opportunities.

Preserving Our Heritage in the Blueprint

Wild rice isn't just a crop—it's a symbol of our connection to the land and our ancestors. The Wild Rice Processing Facility, in the planning phase with EDA assistance, envisions preserving and celebrating this cultural heritage for generations to come.
