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 Annual Meeting & 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 Princess Pageant for 2021-2022 Chickasaw Princesses will air Monday, Sept. 27 at 6 p.m. View the pageant virtually at and on Facebook, at
