Rita Monoessy

Hello everybody.

My name is Rita Florence Monoessy. I’m 16-years-old. I’m a sophomore at Fletcher Jr. High. I am the daughter of Melinda Alceda and Larry Monoessy Sr., and the granddaughter of Lisa Longhat, Collette Dupoint, Neal Monoessy, and the great granddaughter of the late Rita Wauahdooah Mountain, the late Carl Tahah and Patsy Wockmetooah Tahah, and the late Elrod “Crutch” Monoessy and Barbara Monoessy.

I have been dancing in the powwow arena since I was 14 months old, and have been the Head Little Girl Dancer and Head Teen Girl Dancer for several powwows over the years.

I am currently the Jr. Comanche Nation Princess, and have served as the Chasenah Family Princess in 2014-2016, the Walters Service Club Princess in 2017-2018, and the Kiowa Head Start when I was in Pre-K.

I have the opportunity to represent my Comanche People at different powwows in a positive and honorable way and had the opportunity to travel to California and meet and see different tribes. I love dancing and singing and being around my Indian people of all tribes. I hope all have a great day, and Happy Mother’s Day and enjoy yourself at the Comanche Little Ponies Powwow.
