Samantha Brooke Fox was born January 4, 1989 to Lorraine White and the late Lee Fox.  She was the second oldest of 11 children.  In her early years she loved to travel to powwows with her family.  She danced “old style jingle dress” and would often get frustrated when she wouldn’t win in the states but would take 1st place in Canada.  She was gifted with talents in cheerleading.  She had a beautiful voice and sang a solo in high school.  Her younger days were spent with all her cousins and close friends.  In the 7th and 8th grade, Samantha attended Crow Creek Middle School where she graduated from the 8th grade.  From Crow Creek, she continued onto high school at Four Winds.  After high school she attended Cankdeska Cikana Community College and Haskell University.  As a young adult she worked at the Casino, Fire Hall and Cankdeska Cikana Community College Day Care. 

Samantha became a mother at the age of 22 to a beautiful daughter, Jayden Rose Love Fox.  Jayden is Samantha’s only baby girl along with her adopted son Dante Joseph WhiteBuffalo (son of the late Loretta WhiteBuffalo).

“My Mom was a very sweet, loving, kind, person.  My Mom always loved putting cheese in a lot of her food.  She knew a lot of people and was always there for them.” JAYDEN.
