Miss Universe contestant explores her Ojibwe roots


When asked if she will be the first person of Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa heritage to compete in the Miss Universe pageant, Carolyn Carter wasn’t certain.

“But I’m definitely the first person of Fond du Lac descent to win Miss U.S. Virgin Islands,” she said on a visit to Cloquet earlier this month.

The 26-year-old was crowned Miss U.S. Virgin Islands in May, a title that followed previous appearances in the Miss World (2010), Miss Supranational (2011) and Miss Earth (2012) competitions.
