Description

Written by Elizabeth Albert-Peacock, Ojibwe, and illustrated by Anna Granholm.

Dancing on Wild Rice is a heartfelt story that follows the journey of Savana, a young girl who learns the profound significance of her Ojibwe heritage through the tradition of wild rice harvesting. At the beginning, Savana is a city girl attending a Native charter school where she learns about mahnoomin (wild rice) and its cultural and spiritual importance. Her life takes a meaningful turn when her mother takes her to visit her grandparents on the reservation instead of spending the day as she planned. Initially resistant and longing for the comforts of home, Savana's perspective begins to change when she is invited by her cousin, Bineshiinh.
