About Cheyenne Wilson

Cheyenne Glade Wilson, an enrolled Oglala Sioux tribal member, is a cowgirl/rancher, wife, mom, writer/blogger, and believer in all things positive. As a 5th generation rancher, Cheyenne was born and raised on her family’s ranch in southeastern Montana and spent much of her young life in the rodeo arena. School and other interests took her to various cities throughout the country where she furthered her knowledge of retail business and management. After climbing the corporate ladder for several years, Cheyenne realized her heart remained rooted in her ranching background, and returned to carry on the family tradition. Cheyenne and her husband, Shane, run their cow/calf operation on the Pine Ridge Reservation near Oglala, SD. They are thrilled to be raising their son, Stone, in the same lifestyle that they were blessed to grow up in. Cheyenne divides her time between the ranch and her Le-Vel business, which she began in November of 2014. A natural born philanthropist, Cheyenne is always focused on paying it forward and enjoys truly helping others live the life they deserve! A true cowgirl at heart, Cheyenne returned to the rodeo arena after a 20 year absence in 2013. Recently, she and her teammates took home the Year End Champions title of the WRRA (Women's Ranch Rodeo Association) in 2015. She loves to prove the point that you are never too old to follow your dreams. She also pens a blog entitled “The Native Cowgirl.” She is no newcomer to the writing world, having been a published poet at age 12. In the wake of the horrible October 2013 blizzard that killed thousands of cattle and devastated hundreds of South Dakota ranchers, Cheyenne was moved to write the poem “The Storm Atlas”, which was published in numerous periodicals around the country. She is currently working on her first book and plans to finish it in the next year or so. In her free time, she enjoys making memories with her family and also loves to ride, rope, read, and create wonderful home-cooked meals for friends and family. She is truly a modern day cowgirl and says she wouldn’t trade her ranch life for all of the diamonds in the world.
