Candidates cannot have previously served as Miss Cherokee and must be a Cherokee Nation citizen living in the 14-county tribal jurisdiction.

She has also visited the Oklahoma Capitol and Cherokee Nation community meetings across the country. To run for Junior Miss Cherokee, contestants must be between the ages of 13-17, a Cherokee Nation citizen and reside within the 14-county tribal jurisdiction.
