Deanna Rae StandingCloud has jokes.

She also has the voice, and the skill. Now, she just needs more opportunities to show it.

StandingCloud, Red Lake Nation, from Minneapolis, is one of the few female powwow emcees in a typically male-dominated field. Now that in-person powwows and other social gatherings are coming back after a monthslong pandemic hiatus, StandingCloud is ready for her voice to be heard.
