Wichita Tribal Princess

 

Message from Joli-I am a sophomore at U.S. Grant High School/OKCPS. My parents are Hope and Cresenciano Herrera. Grandparents, Marilyn and Benjamin Tiger. Great-grandparents, Loraine Motah Burgess and Gillis Llewellyn Miller Sr. My great-grandfather was full-blooded Wichita and once held the sacred tobacco for our people. My Great-great Grand parents are Belle Caley and Houston Miller, who also held the tobacco for our people.

I am involved in many activities; N.A.S.S. Dance troupe, Miss ResoNative Youth Dance Troupe Princess, Ervhv Society (Little Sisters Society), Violin lessons at Granville School Of Music, Dance Classes at U.S. Grant High School; Corporal in the U.S. Grant MCJROTC Program, U.S. Grant MCJROTC Color Guard, And N.A.S.S.OKCPS all Native Color Guard. I also plan to be in the Marksmanship team for U.S. Grant MCJROTC. I also help give Fancy Shawl lessons at the Cultural Night for N.A.S.S. OKCPS JOM Program. I attend powwows all over OK, & sometimes out of state, throughout the year. As a member of OKCPS Dance Troupe I have been invited to dance at many special occasions in the past 6 years, representing my culture in many State & Metro functions. As a member of Ervhv Society I have volunteered at many native functions, such as concession stands, preparing Christmas goody bags for a local Native Church, serving the elders at many powwows, helping with OKCPS JOM indian taco fundraisers & cleaning up after various events. As Wichita Princess I would be more than happy to donate my time for tribal events.

I will do my best to represent and meet all expactations of being the 2014-2015 Wichita Tribal Princess. Suh-theets!
