Abstract:     
This article posits that the current controversy concerning wild rice is best understood as a clash between the traditional Ojibway culture and the culture of the European settlers. It provides an extensive historical and scientific background for this thesis. In doing so it provides a critique of regulation of the wild rice harvest in the State of Minnesota and concludes with suggestions for improved wild rice resource management in Minnesota.
