In our second segment we travel to a reservation near Lac du Flambeau to profile Greg Johnson of the Ojibwe tribe. Greg takes us out on the water to show us how to harvest wild rice. Later we return to cook the rice, but in a very unconventional way. All while learning about the culinary traditions and philosophies of the Ojibwe tribe.
