Founders' Day

The Gospel through the Lens of Occupied Lands and Showing up Lutheran

Founders' Day

Prairie Rose Seminole is an enrolled tribal member of the Three Affiliated Tribes of ND, descendent of the Sahnish/Arikara, Northern Cheyenne and Lakota Nations. Seminole served on the Midwest advisory council to the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, advising on labor, nonprofits and tribal government. In 2014 the Bush Foundation recognized Seminole as a Native Nations Rebuilder, a program that recognizes individuals who have a passion for learning about innovative tribal governance practices, and how they can take these ideas and approaches to their own Native nations to make a positive difference. In 2015 the ND Center for Business and Technology recognized Seminole as one of 2015 Leading Ladies. She brought food sovereignty and Indigenous traditional medicine knowledge to global conversations as a Salzburg Global Fellow in 2016 and again in 2017. 

Seminole was formerly the Cultural Advisor to the Sanford Health Systems One Care initiative and Strategic Prevention Specialist for the Boys and Girls Club of the Three Affiliated Tribes, serving eight communities and over 2000 youth between the ages of 5 and 18. Currently, Seminole is the Program Director for the American Indian and Alaska Natives with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. She continues as an educator with an Indigenous lens to issues of justice, education and political participation.
