BIRCH BARK - WINNOW BASKET (LARGE SIZE)

These full sized birch bark winnow baskets (nooshkaachinaagan) are used by the Chippewa people in the old traditional method of processing natural lake wild rice. Once the hulls have been separated from the rice through the process of “jigging”, the rice is then placed in the winnow basket and tossed into the air where the husks are separated and removed by the wind. The clean rice seeds fall back into the basket and are then made ready for storage.

Each basket measures appx. 18"L x 12" W x 4" deep. 

Please allow for natural variations in each basket. Call our retail and distribution outlet to customize any of our gift baskets with your favorite Red Lake Nation Food products. 1-888-225-2108
