The Miss Navajo Nation pageant is one of high importance amongst the Navajo Nation. Miss Navajo is a quintessential representation of her culture and serves as an ambassador for her people promoting education, community well-being, and the preservation of language and traditional life ways.

Contestants endure a week-long competition as they are tested on their fluency in Diné Bizaad (Navajo language), demonstrate traditional skills, perform contemporary talents, and engage in food preparation. Surrounded by her family and determined to represent her Navajo people, Jolyana Begay-Kroupa shares her journey to becoming Miss Navajo Nation.
