Ojibwe wood mortar and pestle
An Ojibwe mortar and pestle for threshing wild rice. The long pestle (A) is made from a roughly carved piece of wood. The mortar (B) is a cedar slat bucket with a round log slab base. Because the support hoops are not attached, the mortar disassembles easily for storage.
