Tashia Hart is putting together a cookbook featuring manoomin (wild rice) and other wild foods of Minnesota. This will be published by the Minnesota Historical Society Press in the fall of 2021. I like to cook and she asked me for my manoomin recipe. At first I was honored she asked me, then I was worried because it’s such a simple recipe and I wanted it to be fancier somehow.

On January 25, 2019, a 28-story high tailings dam in Brumadinho, in southeastern Brazil failed, releasing almost 3 billion gallons of sludgy mine waste. The spill flooded nearby homes, submerging cars and buses under a river of reddish-brown sludge. The death toll so far has risen to 228 with an estimated 49 people still missing and presumed dead. This is Brazil’s deadliest-ever mining accident.
