Native America Calling: Rethinking Native pageant royalty
Your National Electronic Talking Circle
Wednesday, September 15, 2021

Summer pageants and fairs offer a chance for young Native women to represent their nations as royalty. They carry a title and a platform to educate and inform others about important issues and their culture.

At the same time, the “Indian Princess” label brings with it a number of problematic stereotypes that don’t fully reflect Native women’s strength, beauty and intelligence.

Native America Calling will talk about redefining pageants and the ways Native women exemplify poise, strength and use the platform to shine a positive light on their communities and inspire others to pursue their goals and dreams.
