Wild Rice in Minnesota and the Great Lakes Region: A Flagship for Environmental Preservation and Indigenous Resource Sovereignty
Librarians and researchers worked together during the sprints to develop a strategy to search for academic literature, gray literature, and primary source documents related to the topics of partnering with tribes, wild rice and tribes, community-based participatory research, natural resources management, food sovereignty, and listening sessions. The results of these searches were then categorized and collected into Mendeley, a citation manager. Also, with the assistance of archivists, the team collected finding aids and primary sources from archives at the university and around the country. Finally, the group collaborated to build a publicly accessible website for the project team using WordPress through DASH Domains.
