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.
