7th generation Taoseña claims Reina de Las Fiestas de Taos crown

Posted

On a glittering Saturday afternoon (June 8),  the 2019 Fiestas de Taos began its activities. Five competed for the  Fiesta Reina's crown in this year's pageant held at the Taos Community Auditorium. Marked by a proud celebration of Hispanic and native cultures — and plenty of nervousness on the part of the five young lady candidates  — a new Reina de Las Fiestas de Taos was chosen. 

Sheyenne Carleen Cecelia Torrez swept the five judging categories with her poise and confidence — and a feisty flamenco talent performance. A seventh-generation Taoseña, Sheyenne is a twin whose birthday happens to fall during the Fiesta's celebrations on July 21. 

The crowning of the new Reina takes place on Friday, July 19.
