Not your typical pageant. 

 

Inside the Miss Navajo Nation Pageant, Where Lost Traditions Are Found Again

 

Miss Navajo Nation is no ordinary pageant. There are no bathing suits or evening gowns, and physical beauty isn’t glorified. Instead the 69-year tradition focuses on Navajo culture, womanhood, and leadership. “It represents the beauty, the language, the tradition, and the matrilineal strength of the Navajo Nation,” says Phefelia Nez, Navajo Nation’s first lady. “These girls prepare for this from a very young age, and it takes the family, the community, to get them ready once they have the desire.”

butchered lamb never becomes mutton in the stew.  it becomes stewed lamb.  lamb vs mutton is based on how old the sheep is when it is slaughtered, not what happens to it next.

Thanks for clarification.

They must then butcher an old sheep!:rolleyes:
