Ten vying for Miss Indigenous Heritage crown

Cassie Junor

Young ladies from the ten administrative regions will today be sashed at the Everest Cricket Ground in anticipation of next Saturday’s crowning of a new Miss Indigenous Heritage at the National Cultural Centre.

The Miss Indigenous Heritage pageant is held every two years.  In 2015, Region nine’s beauty, Sherika Ambrose copped the title.

Next Saturday will be the ninth hosting of the pageant.

This year’s indigenous beauties come from six of the nine Amerindian tribes namely: Arawak/Lokono, Carib, Warau, Arecuna, Patamona and Wapishana

The girls would have competed at the regional level and won, moving them forward to participate at this year’s national level comprising of six categories; introduction, talent, evening wear, platform interviews, traditional wear and the final category of the question and answer segment. The first five segments will be tallied for each contestant and the final five to be chosen will be based on the combined scores. Once the contestants have been rounded off to five, they will compete during the final segment for the Miss Indigenous Heritage 2017’s title on a clean slate…..
