Descrizione

Around Michilimackinack was the land of Great Hare. There, amongst the green islets, under the cool shade of wide spreading trees, where fish leaped above the rippling waters, he made the first fish net. He made it after watching Spider weave a web for catching flies. It was Wenibojo who, in Ojibwa land, discovered the wild rice and taught tliei Indians to use it. He first pointed out the low ggascsn1§lag1ds 1n the lakes, waving their bright green '1éavés'éfia (spikes of yellowish-green blossoms. He showed them how to cut paths through the wild-rice beds before the grain was ripe, and later, to beat it into their canoes. He told them always to gather the wild rice before a storm, else the wind would blow it all into the water. Therefore the Indians use wild rice in all their feasts. They even taught the white men to use it.
