The inaugural pageant is being held on July 27.

Sereena Nahmabin is excited to be one of 26 contestants vying for the title of Miss Indigenous Canada in July.

“It’s a self-development and leadership program for Indigenous women across Canada. Their mission is to empower and encourage young Indigenous females to develop leadership skills, work within their communities, and connect culture,” Nahmabin explains adding, “People hear pageant and they automatically think beauty and there are no ties to that.”

According to its website, the Miss Indigenous Canada is a “three-day event geared towards young Indigenous leaders of tomorrow….and was created in an effort to provide an outlet for young Indigenous women to celebrate their abilities and achievements, make connections with like-minded peers, work to serve their communities, and promote cultural involvement and connection.”
