Hello, my name is Niagara Rockbridge. I am of the Towering House Clan, born for the wild Banana Fruit Clan, my maternal grandmothers are of the Wandering People Clan, and my paternal grandparents are of the Near the Water Clan. I am the 2021-2022 Miss Navajo Nation. I am 22 years old. My first footsteps began in Tselani/Cottonwood where my maternal grandmother and mother are from however, I have also come to call Pinon my home as well as this is where my paternal grandmother and father are from. As Miss Navajo Nation I hope to promote the preservation of our Dine ways of life, language, culture and traditions. By utilizing the concept and teachings of family unity, we can begin to harmonize our home, communities and Navajo Nation.
