NATIVE NEWS ONLINE – Shelby Elizabeth Mata, a tribal citizen of the Comanche Nation, was crowned Miss Native American USA 2021-2022 on Friday, Sept. 10 in a special ceremony. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the competition for the Miss Native American USA pageant was canceled this year for the second year in a row. As an alternative solution to name a new Miss Native American USA, the pageant’s leadership team decided to give the title to Mata, 24, who was the first runner-up two years ago. She succeeds  Lexie James (Hopi), who reigned for one extra year because of the pandemic.
