Description

Jamie Holding Eagle is an enrolled member of the Mandan Hidatsa Arikara Nation. Her great-great-grandmother Scattered Corn was the first female corn priestess for the Mandan. Scattered Corn held and blessed seeds and performed ceremonies for successful harvests on behalf of the tribe.

Like her great-great-grandmother, Holding Eagle focuses on sourcing, saving, and using seeds locally. She is now helping others reclaim their place in the food chain through gardens that are planted and growing in yards, parks, vacant lots and schools throughout the Fargo-Moorhead area.

Holding Eagle holds degrees in American multicultural studies, biology, and women and gender studies from MSUM, and is currently a graduate student at NDSU in the Masters of Public Health program.
