CRIT Royalty Court’s Reigns Extended Due to COVID-19 COLORADO RIVER INDIAN TRIBES—— Earlier this month, the CRIT Royalty FB Page reported that the 2019-2020 CRIT Royalty Court reigns have been extended into 2021 due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. The current reigning queens pictured right, graciously accepted the responsibility, they are Nokomis Stone, Miss; Winter Harper, Little Miss and Marilyn Lomayesva, Junior Miss. Normally during this time of year they would be getting ready to end their reigns, but instead, in these difficult times they’ve chosen to continue promote their culture and safety for all as they move forward. The CRIT Royalty boards states, “we can’t thank them enough. It is not unheard of to extend one’s reign when deemed very necessary, and has been done in the past. We wish our gals nothing but a prosperous, safe and enjoyable year.!”
