New Town woman crowned Miss Indian World
Cheyenne Brady from New Town and member of the Sac and Fox tribe was crowned Miss Indian World at the 32nd Annual Gathering of Nations.
Brady received the honor out of 21 Native American women representing their different tribes and traditions who competed in the areas of tribal knowledge, dancing ability, public speaking, and personality assessment. She is currently attending North Dakota State University.
"Miss Indian World is one of the most prestigious honors in the Native American and indigenous world and the winner will serve as a role model for all Native Americans. Cheyenne Brady will travel the world educating others about tribal and cultural traditions, and bring together native and indigenous people," said Melonie Mathews, coordinator of the Miss Indian World Pageant.
Brady, who is 22 years old, will travel to many native and indigenous communities around the world on behalf of the powwow. She is the daughter of Jon and Rebecca Brady. As Miss Indian World, she will represent all native and indigenous people as a cultural goodwill ambassador for one year.
