Úma: Hazelnut Portrait

Hazelnut trees (Úmahu) don’t grow on Standing Rock. They thrive in wetter climates. I have seen this indigenous tree growing wild in Minnesota and Manitoba.

The nuts are ready for harvest in the fall. They grow in clusters of four, forming a beautiful star shape.

I just had to take a picture of this beautiful Hazelnut (úma) cluster that Linda brought back from a recent trip to Minnesota. They are delicious both raw and roasted.
