Miss Indian World Pageant brings talent and Indigenous knowledge to the stage!

Posted By Corinne Rice April 26th, 2019 Last Updated on: April 27th, 2019

April 25th at 7pm was the annual Miss Indian World Pageant!

With a grand opening featuring music by A Tribe Called Red, the contestants paraded into the theater waving and smiling.

Lisa Meeches and Jason Whitehouse hosted the evening which also featured a rocking performance by Sage Bond. Contestants shared their talents of dance and of song, but also shared their traditional knowledge. Corn grinding, stories and family history were part of what was shared that evening. It will be a tough decision for the judges to make in choosing the next Miss Indian World. 

This year's contestants are:



Tayloure Baker (North Dakota)
Passion Blackburn (Montana)
Aysha Catron-Tsosie (Arizona)
Michelle Crowfeather (Montana)
Cordelia Falls Down (Montana)
Kyleigh Farmer (Canada)
