"Siyo, since you last heard from me I have been very busy fulfilling my duties as your Miss Cherokee 2010.
On Tuesday April 12, I had the opportunity to visit the Fourth Grade class at Swain East Elementary School. Little Miss Cherokee Ailyah Bigmeat was able to assist me in demonstrating several Cherokee social dances and answering questions about Cherokee culture.
Also, in April I was able to attend the opening of the Great Smoky Mountains Park Visitor’s Center on Friday, April 15. The same evening I gave a presentation on Cherokee culture for the Mission to the World group leaders. This group is a mission agency of the Presbyterian Church in America and they have helped in Cherokee for 20 years.
During the Week of the Young Child I was invited to help the Cherokee Dental Clinic handout free toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss and information on maintaining healthy teeth and gums on Thursday, May 5."
