Along the edges of the Kakagon River in Wisconsin. The Ojibwe Indians depend on this rice for food and ceremonies.Affected dramatically by climate change. Without rice families go without for a year and more as this continues. Migration is not an option.

I can only imagine how different life would be for so many if they'd of listened to science many years ago and taken action to prevent climate change. ty Beryl posted tweeted
