OPB TO PREMIER ROUND-UP PROGRAM AT TAMÁSTSLIKT
Oregon Public Broadcasting will premiere Sept. 7 the new documentary,
"Oregon Experience: The Wild West Way" about the Pendleton Round-Up at
Tamástslikt Cultural Institute at Pendleton. There will be two free
public screenings at 4:30pm and 6:30pm. As an episode of the OPB
Oregon Experience, the segment will be 30 minutes long. The
at Tamástslikt will precede the OPB television broadcast which will
the show on Sept. 9.
The Pendleton Round-Up is not the oldest rodeo in the country, and not
even close to the biggest. But according to the cowboys who compete
there, it's one of the best. An extraordinary number of local
volunteers run the operation, making a year-round commitment to this
week-long event. The Round-Up, in turn, has become inextricably
intertwined with the Pendleton community and the Umatilla reservation.
The active Native American presence has kept the Round-Up distinctive
throughout these many years. The program shows how for the past 100
years, the people of Pendleton have combined history, tradition and
thrill-a-minute modern entertainment to help their community thrive.
For more information about the premier, contact Susan Sheoships,
Education Coordinator, at (541) 966-9748, or go to
Tamástslikt Cultural Institute is located at the furthest end of the
Wildhorse Resort & Casino grounds, 10 minutes east of Pendleton.
