Ripples of Wisdom move through Tunica
If you think you know the Mississippi River and its people, you may be presently surprised to learn those found by Nancy Sheibe and the women of Ripples of Wisdom, who docked their kayaks at Mhoon Landing last Wednesday and spent the night on the Williams’ farm in Tunica County on their way to New Orleans.
This is an historic event. The paddlers started at the head waters of the Mississippi River, where the water is pure and clean. By the time they return home to Ely, (Western) Minnesota, they will have paddled their kayaks the entire length of the Mississippi River, which by all accounts is 2320 miles. The Mississippi begins in western Minnesota and meanders slowly southwards, where it ends at the Gulf of Mexico.
