In the world of professional Mixed Martial Arts, Nikki Lowe stands out as one of the few Native Americans competing in the sport today. A fighter inside and outside of the cage, she continually strives to maintain her cultural identity as a Chickasaw Native and is now focused on sharing her life experiences through motivational public speaking engagements across the country. Her story has been highlighted in various news articles and has been made into an award winning short documentary called LEGACY. Recently, being a mother of two has compelled her to further Boys With Braids, a mentorship program for Native youth. In December 2017, she successfully hosted her first Boys with Braids event in Albuquerque New Mexico where she currently resides with her two children Nokose and Mvhayv. Nikki’s Native Hope Fellowship allows her to share her life story in hopes that it will touch some people and push them to become better people in all aspects of life.
