Yá’át’ééh shik’éí dóó shidiné’é!!
I am excited to announce that I will be running for the title of Miss Native American USA for 2015-2016. The pageant will take place in Tempe, AZ on August 8th, 2015. There is a $250 registration fee that I will need to submit to confirm my submission for running for this title, due by July 10th, 2015, Friday. The rest of the $250 will go towards; gas, food, hotel stay. My Bio
I am a NAMMY winner and 2 x nominee as a Native American Recording Artist that has released four albums. I was the 2013-2014 Miss Indian World. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Native American Studies from the University of New Mexico in 2011. I am currently enrolled in the Master’s of Jurisprudence in American Indian Law program. I am Diné from Waterflow, NM and my parents are Leonard& Dorothy Begaye.

My Goal as Miss Native American USA

I would like to represent the Indigenous Nations across America as Miss Native American USA. I believe this title would help me to influence the youth across Indian Country to perserve thier culture, language, values, and songs. If I become Miss Native American USA, I would like to promote cultural preservation along with higher education for our indigenous youth. It’s a powerful thing to believe in one’s self and I like to show the youth that anything is possible.
Thank you for your consideration and for those of you who do donate, Ahe'hee'!!
