Sokaogon Community to host Rendezvous, Wild Rice Festival
space
The Sokaogon Chippewa Community is planning a big historical weekend at Mole Lake starting Friday with the Northwood Rendezvous and Wild Rice Festival.

A spokesman for the Sokaogon Community explained that Friday has been set aside for students from area schools to have access to the history of the Chippewa tribe's rich history of wild rice collection on area lakes, and the colorful presentation by the men and women from the rendezvous movement.

The tribal spokesman explained that the Northwoods Rendezvous and Wild Rice Festival is a new event, dedicated to bring many aspects of Wisconsin's pre-statehood history back to life.

The demonstrations and reenactments pertaining to trapping and trading of pelts, food, and tools between the Ojibwe tribes and European settlers will be highlighted. The Sokaogon tradition of harvesting wild rice, which occurred in what is now the region surrounding the reservation, will be featured during the weekend.

“Native American traditional games will be showcased, as well as traditional hunting, trapping and every-day life,” the spokesman added.

While the Friday schedule is filled with the student experiences, the Saturday and Sunday program starts bright and early at 9 a.m. and runs to 5 p.m. with a number of contests.

They include flint and steel fire starting, black powder shooting, primitive archery, hawk and knife throwing.

The Sokaogon Tribe is inviting Native American artists and crafters from throughout the area and early American artisans to join in the sales of items under a big tent. While there is no cost to be a vendor, the tribe does ask that there be pre-registration. For more event details go to www.northwoodsrendezvous.com.

The public is urged to attend.
