Kitikiti'sh Little Sisters


The Kitikiti'sh Little Sisters, now more commonly known as the Wichita Little Sisters, began as a dream of Eva Cozad, Cleta Ataddlety and Ardiina McAdams.  It became a reality on March 15, 1993 when the Kitikiti'sh Little Sisters was officially organized.  The group started out iwth six young ladies and has had more than 200 young ladies participate in the organization since it began.  

This organization was formed to give young girls a sense of pride in their tribe(s) and themselves. The best way to accomplish this deed is to teach the girls how to dance and conduct themselves in a positive manner in and out of the dance arena.  The girls are also taught cultural activities, beadwork, sign language, and traditions of the Tribe. Many of the girls have become tribal princesses of various organizations.  The girls have been invited to and participate in numerous activities throughout the year. 

Cassandra McAdams carries on the organization in honor of her mother, Ardina McAdams.  The girls and their families work hard throughout the year to represent the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes.

Princess

Alexis Ahtone-Abbott 

 Alexis Ahtone-Abbott

My name is Alexis Nicole Ahtone-Abbott and I am the 9 year old daughter of Juanita and Bryant Moore and Josh and Sarah Abbott. My maternal grandparents are Kateri Kay (Luther) Ahtone and the late Vincent George Ahtone and Jim and Gaye Moore. My maternal great-grandparents are the late Sylvester Luther, the late Eva (Guy) Luther, the late Standford Wahekits, and Juanita (Daugomah) Ahtone and the late Vernon "Burr" Ahtone. My paternal grandparents are Ginger Abbott and the later Roger Abbott. I am a proud member of the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes, with Caddo and Kiowa descent.

 

I am a 4th grade student at Will Rogers Elementary in Oklahoma City, where I participate in soccer, basketball and track. I have been an active member of the Wichita Little Sisters since I was 3 years old. I have also participated in the Wichita Language Class, Wichita Summer Youth Program, and the Wichita-Pawnee Visitation.

 

I would like to thank Ms. Cassie and the Wichita Little Sisters Organization for giving me the opportunity to represent the Wichita Little Sisters for the 2015-2016 year. I fully intend to do my best and represent the tribe as often as possible. I would also like to thank Cassie McAdams, Gary McAdams, and Doris McLemore for helping guide me in the proper ways in and around the arena and for taking the time to teach me some of our Wichita Language.
