Supporters brave the storm for Miss Six Nations

SIX NATIONS — Family, friends, Six Nations Agricultural Society members and supportive community members came together during the poor weather conditions to help support current Miss Six Nation Kyleigh Farmer, 20, on Saturday, April 14.

Village Cafe hosted the spaghetti fundraiser to help support Farmer, as she has attended over 60 events during her current reign. She will be using the money from the fundraiser to continue on her journey, with Albuquerque, New Mexico in her sights next.

“It’s been really fun,” said Farmer. ‘I’ve enjoyed every event I’ve gone to.”

Farmer said that she’s most looking forward to learning about other cultures and other titles, as she will be viewing the crowning of the new Miss Indian World at the end of the month. The GON Powwow hosts the largest congregation of indigenous royalty each year, and this will be the second time she has represented as royalty. She explained that she will be using the experience to better prepare herself for when she is ready to compete in the Miss Indian World pageant herself.

“I won’t be competing this year, just representing our community, because I want to compete for the CNE Ambassador of the Fairs,” she said.

She said that with her sights on the title representing the largest fair in Ontario, she has been studying other districts and learning as much as she can from the Ontario Association of Agricultural Societies meetings.

In the future, Farmer said that she is also looking forward to Bread and Cheese, the Grand River Powwow and Community Awareness Week. But she has more in store for herself.

“I am going to be school starting in May,” she said. “I will be going to Fanshawe out in London, and getting into the Artisanal Culinary Arts.”

Although she will be going to school, she noted that she hopes organizations and businesses will still reach out to her.

In regards to the fundraiser, Farmer expressed that she has a lot of gratitude for those that have and continue to support her.

“I am grateful for everybody that came out to support me despite the crazy weather,” she said. “It is such an honour to represent this community as Miss Six Nations and I am looking forward to seeing everyone at the Fall Fair.”

Farmer has led a victorious year with her title and the fundraiser seen a lot of friendly faces and rallied a lot of support — Councillor Mark Hill also won the 50/50 ticket draw and donated his winnings back.
