Governor Visits LCO Ojibwe School Outdoor Skills Class
Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers visited the LCO Ojibwe School on September 8 and spent some time with the Middle School Outdoor Skills class. According to the school's Facebook page, Evers learned different steps involved in processing wild rice, which was harvested the day before on local waters.
Outdoor Skills class instructor, Mike DeMain, explained it as an amazing day meeting the Governor.
"He came out to the wild rice camp and even tried it to see if it was done," DeMain stated on his Facebook page. He said that while Evers sat down to parch the rice, he discussed many different things that need to be done on tribal lands such as cultural, language and wile rice.
Following his visit to the school, Evers stopped by the Boys and Girls Club of Lac Courte Oreilles and visited with staff members.
