Angel Aphrodite Yeahpau

Delaware Nation Princess 2017-2018

On Tuesday, May 23rd 2017, Delaware Nation welcomed in the 2017-2018 Delaware Nation Princess, Angel Aphrodite Yeahpau.  Angel Yeahpau received her crown during a reception held for the special occasion at the Delaware Nation Cultural Building in downtown Anadarko, OKYeahpau was crowned by the outgoing 2016-2017 Delaware Nation Tribal Princess Sariah Taylor Pemberton. Family, friends, Delaware Nation employees and Executive Committee members were in attendance to welcome the newly crowned Princess.

Princess Coordinator Melanie Quiver spoke briefly about the responsibilities of being a tribal princess.  “Being a Tribal Princess is more than a label or title, you are a role model in the community and Ambassador for the tribe.” Yeahpau will be the official ambassador of the Nation at many events across the country and at home. The Delaware Nation Princess is asked to attend as many dances and special events as she can to represent the Nation. “I’m very excited and honored to represent my tribe,” Yeahpau said, “I will represent my people to the best of my ability.”

Angel is the daughter of Ms. Billie Kionute and Thomas Yeahpau.  Her maternal grandparents are Lyman Kionute, Sr., and the late Thelma Toho-Murrow Kionute.  Her paternal grandparents are Donna Prentiss and the late Roderick Yeahpau.  Her maternal Delaware lineage comes from her great-grandmother Ne-AK-ta-Ling (Dirty Face).  She comes from a long line of princesses in her family.  She is number 7 in this line!

Angel attends Weatherford High School and will be a senior this year.  She carries a 3.0 grade average.  She enjoys learning about her culture.  She has attended the Delaware Water Gap Trip to Pennsylvania the past two years.  It helps that she already comes from a traditional family with strong ties to their cultural background.  With this knowledge, she brings so much to being the Delaware Nation Princess/Ambassador, this year.

The Cultural Preservation Princess Program welcomes Angel with open arms and we know she will do a wonderful job in all the dances, events, and classes that she’ll be a part of.  We’ll have a great year!
