Kiana’s paternal grandfather was Michael E. Brown, Sr. (the son of Semerian B. Brown, Jr. and Estella Valentine). Michael was born in Reading, Pennsylvania. Semerian was the son of The Rev. Semerian Billion Brown, Sr. and Docia Mae/May Jones. Estella was the daughter of Louis Valentine and Ida B. Robinson.
Kiana’s paternal grandmother is named Cheryl M. Johnson.
Kiana’s maternal grandfather was Mexican. She has said, “…my grandfather was deported back to Mexico before my mom was born. Growing up in Phoenix, I was surrounded by my culture and could understand just enough but was never taught the language fluently because I never got the chance to know my family.”
Kiana’s maternal grandmother was Nancy Dale Norman (the daughter of Robert Norman and Norma Berg). Nancy was born in New Jersey. Robert was the son of Harry/Henry R. Norman, whose paternal grandparents were Irish, and whose mother was Scottish, likely with Irish ancestry; and of Estelle Weaver, who was of English, French, Irish, and Dutch descent. Norma was the daughter of Theodore Berg, who was Swedish, and of Olga Olsen, who was Norwegian.
