Since Vivien was crowned as the Comanche Nation Jr Princess on April 2, 2023, she attended a whirlwind of events to represent the Comanche Nation.  She attended a private event to represent not only the Comanche Nation but the Quanah Parker descendant at Ft Sill, where a collection of the Comanche artifacts were on display for viewing. Some of those items were belongings of Baldwin Parker Sr and Quanah Parker.  She went to Fort Duchesne with the Shoshone Reunion Committee this past June and was in several parades, Pow-wows, and Banquets to show her support and represent the Comanche Nation.
