Hidatsa Shield pole bean


 Hidatsa shield is a very productive pole bean that can grow up to 8′ high.  It produces 5-7 seeds per pod and they go very well with salads and soups.  The story I have found online is that this seed is from the Missouri delta river and originally belonged to the Dakota people.  This seed is described in the amazing book ‘Buffalo Bird Woman’ (Maxidiwiac Waheenee).  This book was written in 1839 from the words of Buffalo Bird woman.  This is a sacred seed for their community.
