As Ojibwe food producers, every day our hands and our feet touch the lands of our ancestors and honor what food truly is. Our arms push thought the water, our hands knock the rice. As we harvest, we reseed and our responsibility to life is returned to our home once again. The hands of the people tap the trees, haul the sap, and build the fires that cook the sugar. In this way we honor the life that has been given and the ones yet to come, by our work and by our love.
