FORT HALL — A meet and greet for Miss Shoshone-Bannock Taylor Haskett is April 20 at 4:30 p.m. in the Tribal Business Center Dome Room as she is vying for Miss Indian World April 25 to 29 at the Gathering of Nations in Albuquerque, N.M.
All hand drum singers are invited. Cake will be served. In addition, Taylor will be selling raffle tickets for $2.50 each.
For her talent, Taylor is telling the Creation story – the Water people (animals) version. Her mother Bobette said as she is telling the story she will demonstrate wrapping her hair in otter furs. She will be wearing a buckskin dress and her props include a beaver pelt, otter pelt and muskrat pelt. Taylor trapped the beavers and muskrats with her father Russell and her brother Tim.
Taylor has sold the required number of raffle tickets to run for the title, however she still has some available for sale.
Bobette and Tim will be traveling with her to Albuquerque while her father Russell and sister Mia will stay at home because she can’t miss school.
