Gathering Of Nations Noted By Al Jazeera

Katherine noted this fun article about the Gathering of Nations in Albuquerque:
In many ways, this unique pageant's definition of what American beauty truly entails is the ideological antithesis to Miss America. Indeed, since 1984, this five-day competition based in Albuquerque, N.M., has honored Native American woman for their contributions to their communities, not their bikini bodies. The top award is given to the contestant who "best represents her culture," according to Al Jazeera.
