MinneCulture | Jaida Grey Eagle: Creating Community Through Photography

Jaida Grey Eagle is an Oglala Lakota photographer focusing on the lives and stories of people of color in the Twin Cities and beyond. As a photojournalist, her work empowers local communities through representation. Her fine art celebrates Native women while intertwining the personal stories of her subjects with greater themes of history and traditional culture.

Jaida has been researching Native photographers, past and present, in preparation for an exhibition that she is curating at the Minneapolis Institute of Art. KFAI’s Ben Heath spoke to Jaida about her work and the upcoming show.
