hmmm, wild rice isn't actually "rice" it is a grass, I don't think it has gluten in it naturally, but some brands may have some in it... as with anything, it's always a good idea to check with the manufacturer if you have any doubts.

Yep, plain ol' wild rice is gluten-free. If you're using it in a stuffing, I would encourage you to combine it with brown rice (for taste) and arborio rice (for texture). I find that a 1:2:1 (wild:brown:arborio) ratio works well. The wild rice will give you a nutty, chewy taste and texture, the brown rice will give an earthy taste, and the arborio will add a creaminess that is reminscent of bread based stuffings. (It's a stove-top cook, however, and you'll have to stir frequently, as this is technically a risotto.)

*Note: medium or short grain brown rice works better than long grain, again, for the creamy texture aspect.
