Tamastslikt hosts exhibit on Pendleton Round-Up


PENDLETON - A new exhibit at Tamastslikt Cultural Institute, 72789 Highway 331, "Tall in the Saddle: 100 Years of the Pendleton Round-Up," will run July 23-January 2011.

It features more than 400 artifacts, including early Round-Up photographs, Jackson Sundown's prized silver-studded saddle and loans from both the Autry and Cody museums.

It highlights the gamut of individuals who left lasting imprints, such as Roy Raley, the citizen with a vision; cowboys and cowgirls competing as early professional athletes; African-American and American Indian rodeo champions and court royalty both Indian and non-Indian.

Collected from many local and distant sources, the collaborative exhibit represents the largest collection of artifacts about the Pendleton Round-Up experience.
