Radmilla Cody

Radmilla Cody is an award-winning Native American recording artist, international performer, former Miss Navajo Nation, and founder of the “Strong Spirit: Life Is Beautiful Not Abusive” campaign, which brings awareness to teen dating violence.  As a survivor of domestic violence, Radmilla uses her personal experiences to advocate throughout Native America and internationally for the importance of understanding and identifying unhealthy relationships and recognizing healthy relationships. In her lectures, Radmilla incorporates the message of self-respect, self-worth, cultural pride, and identity.  She combines educational tools and personal experience to help attendees gain an insightful and empowering message about resiliency and creating positive change. Miss Cody is of the Tla’a’schi’i’ (Red Bottom People) clan and is born for the Nahillii (African-Americans).  She is the subject of an award-winning documentary, Hearing Radmilla, produced and directed by Angela Webb, which further explores Radmilla’s journey as an activist and performer. Radmilla has her B.S. in public relations with a minor in sociology and is currently pursuing her Masters in sociology. In 2010, Radmilla was selected for NPR’s 50 Great Voices, a yearlong series featuring singers from all over the world. Recently, Radmilla was awarded the “Black History Makers Award 2012” from Initiative Radio.
