DNR to Host Manoomin Meeting August 5


The Mille Lacs Band's Department of Natural Resources is hosting a meeting August 5 at 2 p.m. at the Iskigamizigan Powwow Grounds in District I to discuss the season outlook, opportunities to participate in ricing committees, general concerns of harvesters, youth participation, planning of ricing and processing demonstrations, and the state opening date.

Snacks, beverages, and gifts will be provided, and there will be opportunities to win prizes.

Because the meeting will be held outdoors, masks are not required but are recommended. Please practice safe social distancing measures.

Attendees are asked not to use the upper parking lot at the Powwow Grounds. That area has not been finished yet, and Community Development is trying to keep as much traffic off of it as possible.
