Ponka-We Vickers, a Ponca/Tohono O'odham woman from Kansas, was crowned the fourteenth Miss Indian Nations at United Tribes Technical College.

Vickers, a descendant of Ponca Chief Standing Bear, beat five other contestants at the United Tribes International Powwow. She said she was "shocked" that she was chosen.

Vickers hopes to use her position to lobby for improved health care. She is studying for a master's degree in public administration at Wichita State University in Kansas.
