Is This Native Toddler the Cutest Baby in Montana? You Can Vote!


We all know that Native beauty comes in all shapes and sizes—and, of course, ages. A Native couple in Missoula, Montana, reached out to ICTMN with some fun news about their daughter Irie:

"My husband and I entered our daughter, who is an enrolled member of the Crow Nation in Montana, into the cutest baby in Montana contest. She took first in the cutest baby in Missoula contest, which put her in the state contest. It is based on number of votes. She was the only Native baby that made the statewide competition. Her father is Crow and I'm Cree from Rocky Boy."

We're not surprised that Irie took the title for Missoula—just look at that face! There are nine finalists vying to be "Montana's Cutest Baby," and we think Irie might just win this thing. You can vote for her (or others, if you like) at the ZOO FM 107.5 "Montana's Cutest Baby" contest page—voting is permitted once every 12 hours, and the polls close April 26. Here's the full picture of Irie:
