Thank you to all who attended and made this weekend a success especially Chief Chewy, Eric Jones of the Mojave Tribe who served as our Nation Chief for two memorable years. Thank you Eric for your guidance and leadership.

Breaking Arrow

A special thank you to all of the Princesses who broke arrow. We will definitely miss you. Thank you for sharing your passion for our program and leading our younger Princesses by example. I have been to a few Breaking Arrow Ceremonies, and this was my first sing along. Delaney Norton and Scott Norton lead us in a campfire song “The Cup Song” that will last in my memory for a very long time. Thank you both.

Mojave Breaks Together

Mojave breaks together. The bond of Princesses going through the tribe experience together runs so deep that they all stayed 2 more years to break arrow together. 
Princess Flower Heart breaks arrow after 14 years. The end of an era, but your love for your dad and your tribe lives on.

“Dad will always say yes.” To echo a Chief from the Sioux Tribe, when it comes to our program Dad will always say yes. These years fly by and we have to take advantage of these opportunities to bond with our daughters. 

Every dad here wants something better for their daughter. A fireman, a contractor, a lawyer all have the same goal: something better for their daughter. 

“Dad, I love you so much.”  These are the words we want to hear. Every Princess breaking arrow concluded their speech with gratitude and love for their Dad and our program. Thank you all for making Y Princess the best program around.

Nation Chief transfer

Chewy out! Muddy foot in!
Eric Jones left big shoes to fill, but Jose Negroni from Sioux is the man for the job. We look forward to a successful 2021-2022 Y Princess year.

Circle F has so much to offer, but horseback riding is our favorite. The Odyssey Rope course is also a great time.

Mojave to the rescue!

The mighty Mojave

I talk a lot about our program strengthening the bond between father and daughter, but we have an amazing nation. The bond between dads is just as strong. We came close to a major issue with our trailer. Thankfully a good samaritan alerted me to a smoking wheel on the trailer I rented and I found the first place I could stop. While I was freaking out wondering how to resolve this issue Eric Jones sees us on the side of the road, calls me, and turns around. He called the Mojave Tribe and they all showed up to bail me out of a jam. No questions asked, and the trailer was emptied into every truck bed. As I wait for roadside assistance to tow the trailer the Mojave tribe treated my girls to lunch and Sonny’s BBQ. After a short delay I am back on the road. I do not want to think how this incident could have gone, but I am thankful it went this way without drama. Thank you all very much. I am grateful for your help.

How how,
-Chief Fat Daddy

Say Hey Say Ho Say Navajo!

Special thanks to Chief Todd from the Navajo Tribe for organizing a great weekend on Peanut Island in West Palm Beach. Kayaking, paddle boarding, and snorkeling are just some of the activities on the Island.

We had the island to ourselves after the last ferry departs for shore.

Nightfall means movie time.

After the movie Chief Todd leads us in a circle time of Chief and princess introductions. Each father and daughter share stories of how they joined our program and what it means to them. This trip reminds me of a simpler time. The Navajo Tribe values their present but also the past as princesses who have broken arrow return for this trip. Some even drove from out of state to attend. Their bond is strong.

I think we’re going to need a bigger boat.

Some of us enjoy the sunrise.

The fried rice was outstanding and dessert was even better. Great job on food preparation and execution. Everyone helps out to make this great weekend happen.

Thank you for a wonderful weekend Navajo Tribe.

Great job Navajo

September 6, 2019

Indian Princess is about more than just fathers and daughters spending quality time together . It is about family and community . On September 6 , in the wake of devastating hurricane Dorian , the Navajo tribe banded together with their families and other local charities to support the Bahamian relief effort . The Navajo Families donated food , water, clothing , and essential supplies , while also assisting with boxing and loading outside contributions . The event was a complete success and reinforced the core Miccosukee values of spending time with loved ones and helping others who are in need .

Flick and Float

This is always a great event. Thank you Cherokee and Sioux for all that you do for us. Our Princesses appreciate you.
