An Era of Rejuvenation


The new Miss Navajo Nation crown was created and was designed with a pure mind and good intentions because Miss Navajo Nation meets dozens of people on a daily basis and represents the Navajo Nation. The new design was meant to signify the resiliency and strength of a Diné woman and female holy deities. At the top of the crown are points that are adorned with white shell stones that signify Yoołgai Asdzáá or White Shell Woman. Below the points of the crown are cut-out webs representative of Na’ashjé’ii Asdzáá (Spider Woman) that surround a turquoise stone. At the base of the crown, is hand-stamped work signifying the old-style of Navajo silversmithing designs.

This new design brings with it a new era and a generation born after the millennials that are emerging as the next big thing for the Nation. The new Miss Navajo Nation crown was produced by Matthew Charley of Vanderwagon, New Mexico.
