By Cheyenne Kippenberger, Miss Florida Seminole Princess
Being a part of Seminole Nation Days in Oklahoma was such a great experience. Attending their princess pageant brought back memories of our own crowning day. I felt so welcomed and honored by our hosts and Seminole Nation tribal members, but more than anything I was so happy to be talking and laughing with Summer Foster, Kaniyah Tiger, and Melena Whitekiller again. Congrats to the new Jr. Miss Seminole Nation, Marissa Alberson!
I especially enjoyed visiting the Seminole Nation museum and riding in the parade. There were so many princesses.
It was fun being able to compete in their dress contest, meet other Natives, and be a part of their stomp dance ceremony.
What an honor having the opportunity to join in on such a great weekend in Oklahoma. Shonabisha to my new friends in Seminole Nation.
