    Shaylin is beautiful on the outside only. She says she's against domestic violence against women but supports her uncle as his soon to be ex-wife struggles to divorce him after more than 20 yrs of verbal & physical abuse & violence. If you're going to advocate for women, do it for ALL women & not just for those who aren't married to a family member of yours. Like they say, "You can't judge a book by its cover." Your comments on Facebook towards your uncle's wife contradict what your crown stands for.

    They must not have done a question and answer section. Anyone who knows Shaylin knows that she is not bright (and that's being nice). How can she be an example for Native American women when she is stupid, lazy, talentless, and a liar. This is who was chosen as a representative for us?! I weep for our people, our culture, and our children...

    What a shame...

    anyone can sit behind a computer and write whatever they want to write but would they really say it to her face? Shaylin is NOT responsible for someone elses' actions whether they are her family member or not.
