Sallee Whitewing hails from British Columbia , Canada
Sallee is Native American ,1st Nation ,she also is our 2016 Regal Majesty National Jr Pre Teen Queen
She loves to compete at different Pow Wow competitions where she competes in keeping time with the drum beat and also is judged on her dance regalia.
Recently Sallee just returned home with winning the Nespelem tribe powwow and talent competition Plus many other Pow Wow competitions all over the PNW.
Today’s Native American dancers may reflect a particular tribe in style but many dancers’ outfits are a combination of different traditions and materials and feathers.
Sometimes during dancing at a powwow, an eagle feather may fall off a dancer’s outfit. As soon as it is known a feather as fallen, all dancing stops, the arbor is cleared, and a special traditional ceremony is performed right then. The feather is treated like a fallen warrior whose spirit must be cared for immediately,
Sallee is a great role model to her Native American/1st Nation peers they look up to her not only because she is proud of her culture and heritage, she talks to some children and youth about making good decisions. and by staying away from drug and alcohol abuse, staying in school and keeping up with cultural activities.
