Boozhoo, hello! My name is SaNoah LaRocque. I am an enrolled citizen of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa, & I am your Miss North Dakota USA 2022!

I was born in Belcourt, North Dakota to a single mom. Being a member of a Tribal community, I was exposed to a number of adversities from a young age. When I was 13 years old, my grandparents made the decision to take me in, & they raised me ever since! Their guidance & wisdom made me the woman I am today, & I will be forever indebted to them.

I went to Central High School in Grand Forks, North Dakota. Eventually, I attended Harvard University where I studied Human Evolutionary Biology. During my time at Harvard, I am proud to say that I was a D1 cheerleader, founder of the Exister Society, & was involved with a number of various clubs.

Today, I work in the world of financial consulting. I work for a company that assists Tribal Nations across the United States in the management of funding. My work enables me to assist Tribes with strong nation building efforts & economic development. It is so meaningful to be able to give back to Indian Country.

I am a current resident of Bismarck where I live with my miniature Australian Shepherd Halo LaRocque! We enjoy going for runs together & look forward to training for half marathons. I am also a pow-wow dancer, having danced jingle dress since I was a little girl.

I am so honored to be your Miss North Dakota USA, & I will make you proud as I go forward in this journey.

Miigwetch!
