Here’s why you should apply to be the 2019 Calgary Stampede First Nations Princess

There are two weeks left to apply to be the 2019 Calgary Stampede First Nations Princess and I encourage all young women who are interested to go for it and try out. Not only does the First Nations Princess  learn about herself and her cultures,  she helps teach people all over the world about how powerful and resilient our people are, while being a role model for other First Nations women.

More than 35 ensembles from the United States, Canada and around the globe will be competing in various categories including the full ensemble and events like the DrumLine Battle™.
