The third annual Miss Native American USA Pageant was held this past Friday, August 1, 2014 in Tempe, Arizona. There were nine contestants and April Yazza, a 19-year-old Fort Lewis College Student from Durango, Colorado was the winner. Yazza of the Zuni Pueblo and Navajo (Dine') Tribes from Mentmore, New Mexico is studying Graphics Design with a minor in Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management.
The picture above shows Yazza with former Miss Native American USA Sarah Ortegon. In case you missed it earlier this year, PowWows.com had an interview with Sarah Ortegon.
Congratulations to all the ladies who were nominated. You are all such great role models!
