Powwow princess to represent Washoes

The first official duty of the Washoe Tribe’s new La Ka Le’l Be Princess comes today when she participates in the Nevada Day Parade.

Four girls from the Washoe Tribe of California and Nevada competed for the honor Friday by answering questions and performing a traditional American Indian dance before several judges and an audience.

This year’s princess is Kaylene Scott, 13, of Hungry Valley. She is a member of the Reno-Sparks Indian Community and attends Yvonne Shaw Middle School. Her long, red American Indian style dress was as noisy as it was bright and festive. Every time she moved, several rows of cones jingled.

Update: The La Ka Le’l Be Princesses were crowned Friday night.
