Breaking…Amber Andrews Says She will NOT Reign as Queen

The young indigenous woman who was crowned on the evening Saturday, 17th of September, as Amerindian Heritage Queen 2022-2024 has made a Press Release via her Facebook Page stating that she will NOT reign as queen because she will be stripped of her crown.
