Follow Miss Indian World, Tashina Red Hawk
Hello. My name is Tashina Red Hawk.
My Lakota name is Anpetu Yuonihan Win which means “Honors the Day Woman”. I am an enrolled member of the Sicangu Lakota Oyate. I live in the Old Ring Thunder Community which is located along the Little White River on the Rosebud Reservation.
For many years, my Lakota people have seen persecution, were stripped of their dignity, pride and left with hopelessness. But this is the 21st century, and I am the daughter and granddaughter of many Chiefs and Women Warriors that have left me the legacy of strength and perseverance. I love and cherish my Lakota Way of life. As a nine-year-old girl I was asked to carry the Sacred Pipe at the Looking White Sundance in the Black Pipe Community. When the Pipe was getting heavy I ask the Spiritual Advisor why that was. He said “It was the weight of my people”. That statement inspired me and gave me the strength to continue my comment for my Oyate.
Today I am the 2022-2023 Miss Indian World. The platform I will promote is cultural preservation, identity and education. To strengthen our nations, we must be knowledgeable in both world and build a bridge of unification.
