More About Her

Cheyenne is a former Miss Florida Seminole (2018-2019), and uniquely the first Seminole woman to hold the prestigious title of Miss Indian World from 2019-2021. She is passionate about sustaining Indigenous culture and empowering her community. After an intense struggle with her own identity, mental health and the continuous battle against the public prejudice of those conditions, she openly speaks about her experience with radical acceptance, depression, struggling in school, seeking help, and proudly embracing the challenges of her life. 


As Miss Indian World, she served as a cultural goodwill ambassador representing all Native and Indigenous people globally and held the longest reign in MIW history. Throughout her ambassadorship, she aspired to break down the stigmas of mental health conversations, empower and encourage her people, and share her experiences as a young, mixed, Indigenous woman. She was also dedicated to encouraging civic engagement amongst Tribal communities and lead a national census campaign in collaboration with over eighty Tribal Royalty Representatives and the Center for Native American Youth (CNAY). As the founder and Co-Chairwoman of the "Healing The Circle In Our Tribal Communities," a trauma-focused healing symposium, she sought out to create a safe space to discuss the many common traumas present in our Tribal communities. She was also chosen to serve as a Peer Guide for UNITY’s (United National Indian Tribal Youth) Healing Indigenous Lives Initiative program, which supports and enhances Native youth engagement with a focus on juvenile justice and delinquency prevention in Indian Country from 2018-2021.

Cheyenne has been named an emerging leader in South Florida and has ambitions to break into state policy and serve as the first Florida Seminole in state office. With a true passion to uplift future generations, for the past three years she had ran all communications for the Center For Native American Youth (CNAY) at the Aspen Institute, a national advocacy and education organization dedicated to serving and empowering Native youth. She carries deep passions for educational reform, protecting the FL Everglades and environment, mental wellness and cultural preservation. With almost 10 years experience of public speaking and facilitation, Cheyenne has partnered with many schools and universities, national NGOs and companies to shift the narrative of Native and Indigenous people, overturn adverse stereotypes and myths, and enhance cultural and historical understandings. She was awarded the 2022 Outstanding Young Floridian by JIC Florida, proudly serves on several Native pageant program committees across Indian Country, and leads her own company, CK Consulting. Cheyenne is proud of where and who she comes from and believes in living healthy, full lives in honor of ourselves and our ancestors.


She is available for speaking presentations, workshops, and other events.
