A local 11-year-old earned the title of Jr. Miss Nevada Urban Indians Powwow Princess for 2017-2018.
Ciabi Dick was crowned at the Nevada Urban Indians Powwow held at Wooster High School on March 4.
At the pageant Ciabi presented about the importance of the tule and cattail plants. She also sold raffle tickets to help support the powwow and introduced herself in the Numu language as part of her princess competition.
When asked about her future, Ciabi said she would like to be a Native teacher to the youth.
The Churchill County Middle School student said she’s proud of her participation in the Native Club known as Vision Quest.
She attends many powwows with her family and dances Northern Traditional style. She also enjoys school sports such as basketball and volleyball.
The Dick family thanks the Powwow Committee and everyone who bought raffle tickets.
