Siksika Nation’s Alayiah Wolf Child new Calgary Stampede First Nations Princess

By John Watson  Local Journalism Initiative Reporter Siksika Nation’s Alayiah Wolf Child has been crowned the Calgary Stampede’s 2023 First Nations Princess, joining Springbank’s Sarah Lambros, her Stampede Princess counterpart. Wolf Child explained this is her first time venturing into a competition of this type and is thrilled to wear the crown for the upcoming year. “I’m really excited. I was nervous at first, but I think the nerves have finally settled down and I am just really excited for what is to come next,” she said. “My best friend is actually a princess alumnus, and so she motivated me to step out of my comfort zone and challenge my own social anxiety.”   For Wolf Child, significant involvement with the Calgary Stampede runs deep into her family history.
