Wild rice and Pesach

Wild rice (AKA as crazy oats) contrary to its names is not in fact rice or oats. It is in fact a member of the same tribe as rice but is a different genus. According to Wikipedia they're nut directly related. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wild_rice. Since it ms not rice and did not exist in Europe is this kitnyot? Is there a minhag which added on wild rice as kitnyot? Or is this like quinoa (which many hold was not part of the original minhag and so is fine) ?
