    Yesenia Hill
    Navajo and Ojibway
    16 Years old

    My name is Yesenia Wingosh Yashie Hill. I am from the Navajo (Dine`) and Ojibway Nations. I am 16 years old and a junior at Portage Central High School in Portage, Michigan. My parents are Calvin and Sheri Hill. My father is Navajo and was born and raised on the Navajo Reservation in Arizona. My Mother is Ojibway from Sault St. Marie, ONT; she was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan.
    I have been going to pow wows since I could remember. My first pow wow was when I was 3 days old. I have been dancing since I could walk. I started out as Fancy shawl and danced that up until about 8 years ago and then I switched over to Jingle. My mother has taught me how to do Traditional Jingle, which I have been dancing for about almost a year.i feel so honered whn i am at pow wows and i have people from all different nations come and ask me to pray for them and their loved ones, it is such an HONOR. I also sing back up for the southern xtreme singers from cochiti, new mexico.As well as going to pow wows I also do ceremonials for my family. Both my mother and my father have been teaching me about to different ceremonies that we do for certain events.
    When i graduate from high school i would like to go to Arizonia State University for dental school.

    As the 2007-2008 Princess I would honor the title, being proud to extend my hand in friendship to all people who want to learn about Native Americans. I would try to educate with the help of the crown, to promote Indian Awareness. I'm proud of who I am and where I come from. I want to let other non-Indians know that we are like them in many ways. I want them to know that we are proud people with rich heritage."

      Maya Crawford
      Eastern Cherokee
      24 years old
      <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"></a>

      Osiyo! My name is Maya Naomi Crawford. I'm 24 and I live in Jacksonville, Florida. I'm eastern Cherokee on both sides of my family. I belong to the Deer clan. My family is from New York and Connecticut by way of North Carolina and Virginia. I've been dancing since I was 8 years old and have been going to alot of powwows ever since. As you can see, I'm a jingle dancer. I believe that the dance chose me and I feel really good about dancing this style because alot of healing has come out of it. People have asked me to do a blanket dance for them and they believe in the special prayers danced into the blanket. It has resulted in the person in need of the healing to improve. This makes my heart fill with joy to know that people believe in my dancing. I'm also a college graduate from the University of North Florida with a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer and Information Sciences. I'm pursuing a career in software development and currently employed with a software company that creates custom software for RV Dealerships. I enjoy the challenge of software programming and the freedom to be able to go to as many powwows as possible. I've traveled to many powwows all over the southeast ,some in the northeast ,out west and I look forward to traveling to many, many more powwows. Wado!

      I believe that is an awesome site that needs to be represented to its maximum. One thing that I like about the site is that its members are diverse, ranging from descendants reclaiming their heritage to those who are not Native but have a great interest in Native culture. It is a great way for all these people to come together and discuss what is happening in the powwow world and in Native communities all over the continent. I would like to represent that diversity at powwows by becoming princess. Another thing is that I believe that I could get the word out about the website. I travel to alot of powwows and enjoy doing so. If it wasn't for, I would not know of powwows in and around my area. I know that by becoming Princess that this is a great way to give back to the site and all who help run it.

        I'll upload a better picture tomorrow, but here's one for now:

        My name is Erica Scott. I am 22 years old and from the Delaware (Lenape) Tribe and also have Italian and Irish heritage from my father. I am the daughter of Nancy Scott and currently reside with my mother, sister and brother in Massachusetts. I have also spent time in Oklahoma, Kansas and Utah. I have been attending powwows since birth and started dancing at the age of 3. At first I danced fancy shawl and then jingle. Now I dance Southern Cloth and dress Delaware in the traditional style of my tribe. I really love Southern Cloth because I can be creative with my outfits, but I also proudly wear my tribe’s ribbonwork and my family’s beadwork pattern to represent who I am and where I come from. My mother and I sew all of my dance clothes and I do my own beadwork, and I am proud to be a fourth-generation seamstress! I have been employed at T. K. Wolf, Inc., an Indian run non-profit substance abuse treatment and counseling center located in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and the Rhode Island Indian Council. This past June, I graduated with a BA in Anthropology from Harvard University, where I served the Indian community in a variety of roles, including President of Native Americans at Harvard College, three time Powwow Committee Chairperson, and founder of the Harvard Intertribal Indian Dance Troupe. In college I attended several conferences, including NCAI and AISES, at which I was honored to win First Place in the 2005 Oral Presentation Competition. Currently I am applying to PhD programs in medical anthropology, focusing on substance abuse in Indian communities, with the eventual goal of becoming a professor and more imporantly, a mentor for Native youth. I feel that my personal and academic qualities would make me a positive role model and good representative as Princess.<o:p></o:p>

        <!--[if !supportEmptyParas]--> <!--[endif]-->If I were the 2006-2007 Princess, I would strive to represent you all in a good way and bring honor to the site, its members, and my family and tribe. I have been a member of this site since 2000, and in these past years, I have seen it grow by leaps and bounds. I think one of the major strengths of this site is the diversity of its members. I amazes me that there are people here from all over the country, Canada, and now even Germany and other countries! I would continue to spread the word because I travel across the country—in the last year, I was fortunate to attend powwows in Oklahoma, Kansas, Wyoming, Utah, and throughout the Northeast, and I have also attended major powwows such as Gathering of Nations, Schemitzun, and the National Powwow in DC. I am also a very friendly and outgoing person so I would be happy to talk with the youth, elders and everyone in between about this site! Paul gives us a great site and resources, but its real strength is all of our fellow members, and as Princess I would continue to not only invite peole, but also make them feel welcome in introduction and other threads. The more people that are here participating, the more everyone benefits and so, I would love to contribute back to this site as your Princess!
