Chickasaw Princess Program


Out of an abundance of caution and to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus, or COVID-19, certain Chickasaw Nation events, classes, facilities, etc., will be postponed, canceled or closed. For a complete list of postponements, cancellations or closures, visit the COVID-19 INFORMATION page. We will continue to update the list as the situation progresses.

It is a longstanding, annual tradition to select young leaders to serve as Chickasaw Nation tribal royalty, exemplifying the servant leadership core value while carrying out the mission to enhance the overall quality of life of the Chickasaw people.

The princess program allows those crowned the experience of a lifetime. Ambassadors of friendship and goodwill best describe the Chickasaw Nation Princesses. Traveling to more than 40 events across several states, they bring honor and pride to the Chickasaw Nation.

Chickasaw Princesses are selected each year at the Chickasaw Princess Pageant during the Chickasaw Festival. The pageant is open to Chickasaw young women of one quarter blood quantum or more, between the ages of seven and 25. Young ladies compete to hold the title of Little Miss Chickasaw, Chickasaw Jr. Princess and Chickasaw Princess.

The Chickasaw princesses will always have a vital role as ambassadors of the Chickasaw people.

Due to the public health emergency, the current court will continue their reign as 2020-2021 princesses. In lieu of the 2020 pageant, you are invited to view the virtual Chickasaw Princess pageant history and highlights, including contributions from this year’s royalty. The virtual history and highlights can be viewed Monday, Sept. 28, 2020 at 6 p.m. on
