Teyotsihstokwathe Dakota Brant
Teyotsihstokwáthe is a member of the Mohawk Nation Turtle Clan. She was born and raised in Six Nations of the Grand River. Upon graduating high school with honours she went on to complete Mohawk language studies at Onkwawénna Kentyóhkwa and Tsí Tyónnheht Onkwawénna Mohawk Immersion schools. She graduated with high honours and was the first to ever obtain a degree in Indigenous Environmental Studies from Trent University. Guided by an understanding of her language, her people and a strong education she was awarded the coveted title of Miss Indian World at the Gathering of Nations powwow in April 2010. Now an ambassador of all Native American nations to the world, she has travelled extensively and has brought with her an understanding of native people that has been welcomed by people of many nationalities. She is the first Mohawk woman to ever be crowned Miss Indian World, a prestigious and honourable role where she competed against young women from around North America for the crown. Ms. Brant is also an award winning artist in the Haudenosaunee art of Raised Beadwork. Picture courtesy of Indspire.
