Zhavia Ward is an American singer and songwriter. She is also known simply as Zhavia. She is the daughter of singer, hairstyler, and model Bobbi Jo Black.
She has stated that she is of Chiricahua Apache Native American ancestry. It is not clear if this Native American ancestry has been verified/documented.
Zhavia’s maternal grandmother is Barbara Jean “Bobbi” Baca (the daughter of Trinidad J. Baca/Bacca and Barbara Jean Stewart). Zhavia’s grandmother Barbara was born in Colorado, and had deep Mexican/Hispanic roots in New Mexico. Trinidad was the son of Jose Lorenzo Baca and Marcelina Martinez. Zhavia’s great-grandmother Barbara was the daughter of Ernest Francis Stewart and Barbara Mestas.

Vowell is her step-grandfather’s surname, so it can be removed from the profile. Her grandmother’s middle name is Jean. I’ve neither found out her grandfather’s name nor her grandmother’s maiden name yet.
This is her maternal grandmother’s father:
She stated in a TikTok that she is Native American and in one of the comments she wrote that she is Apache Chiricahua. It seems weird to be so specific if she was faking it
She’s claimed to have Indigenous ancestry on her tiktok, though it looks like she’s just looking for an excuse for her hair
There were some similar hairstyles in the Cree and Mojave tribes to be fair, but she won’t specify a tribe so probably just another generokee lol
