Congratulations to San Juan College (SJC) student Daliah Tsosie who was recently crowned Ms. Indigenous San Juan College 2023-24. Tsosie is from the Saltwater clan, born for the Tangle People Clan. Her maternal grandfathers are the Red Running into Water Clan, and her paternal grandfathers are the Towering House Clan. Tsosie is from Whippoorwill Arizona, but currently resides just outside of Farmington.
Plans for her year as Ms. Indigenous San Juan College
“I am honored to represent SJC as the new Ms. Indigenous San Juan College 2023-24,” said Tsosie. “With my new title, I look forward to the year. I cannot wait to gain experience, teachings, and knowledge about the community I now reside in. My platform is to connect with the children and elderly as well as do my best to represent and promote San Juan College.”
Tsosie made the transfer to San Juan College in the summer of 2023. Her decision was based upon the number of programs offered at SJC. Upon completion of her associate program in Pre-Health Science at San Juan College, Tsosie plans to continue in the welding program in the Spring 2024 semester while she applies to the University of New Mexico and San Juan College BSN program for Fall 2024.
Ms. Indigenous SJC history
“I would like to thank SJC and the Native American Center for giving me this opportunity to represent San Juan College,” said Tsosie. The Ms. Indigenous San Juan College pageant dates back several decades. Since its creation, the pageant has formed a legacy of Indigenous women’s voice, and sisterhood of title holders who have served the San Juan College community and their respective cultures and traditions. The selection of Ms. Indigenous San Juan College rests on the judges’ panel made up of former title holders, area royalty and members of the San Juan College community. Tsosie’s reign will run through the fall of 2024.
