Hidden Gems: Native American Foods In Wisconsin (VIDEO)

Lately, there has been a lot of talk about the importance of eating food that is organic and grown locally, but in Wisconsin, the Native American tribes have been doing that for centuries.

Come along for an agritourism trek through Wisconsin's Native American lands.
