Congratulations to Sydney Prince the new American Indian Exposition Princess!  This story was supposed to be tell about Sydney as she turns over the title to the new Wichita Princess and ends her term as Wichita Tribal Princess during the Wichita Annual Dance to be held August 14-17, 2014.  Sydney's future holds something new for her where she can continue to represent our people.  Twelve Princess from various Tribes competed for the 2014-2015 American Indian Exposition Princess title.  Sydney won.  This week she will turn over her title as Wichita Tribal Princess and embark on a new journey.

She is the daughter of Jarrod and Shelly Prince of Anadarko and the sister of SPC Tyler Prince.  He is currently stationed in Landstuhl, Germany with his family, wife Naomie (Paddlety) Prince and daughter Natalia.  Sydney's paternal grandmother is LaDonna French of Gracemont and her paternal great-grandparents were the late Marlene (Standing) and Melvin Williams.  Her maternal grandparents are Larry and Gala Griffitts of Anadarko.   

Sydney has served the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes  very well as the Wichita Tribal Princess.  We would like to give recognition to her parents, Jarrod and and Shelly Griffiths Prince and the Wichita Tribal Director, Tara Tartsah, for their support to Sydney in her journey to winning this title.  We wish her success as she takes this new journey as the 2014-2015 American Indian Exposition Princess.  Congratulations Sydney, we know you will represent our  Wichita people and the Expo well!
