A brief history of Manoomin: Known to the Anishinaabeg as manoomin, (pronounced ma-no-min) meaning the “good berry”, it became a spiritual and cultural staple as well as a culinary one. According to oral tradition, the Anishinaabeg Peoples, also known as Ojibwe or Chippewa, followed a shell in the sky thousands of years ago to find a place where the food grows on water. Their journey led them from the east coast of North America to the Great Lakes Region of the United States and Canada.
