Amber’s Special: a Princess Gives Back

The Special

Part of the Calgary Stampede’s Indian Princess’s year includes a “special” – a contest for the dance style she dances. The Indian Princess is responsible for supplying the prizes and judges.

Amber Big Plume’s Fancy Shawl special was held at the recent Tsuu T’ina Pow Wow.

We have been so proud of Amber during her year as princess. It is hard to believe that her reign is coming to an end.
