Nationally known buckaroos such as Yakima  Canutt, Frank Smith, Howard Tegland, Bob Hall, Hugo Strickland and others competed with local cowboys in bucking horse events, bareback riding, bulldogging and other rodeo events. Also included were famous cowgirls such as Kitty Canutt, Marie Hall and Mabel Strickland who competed in trick riding and roping events, plus several hundred Indians who set up their teepees at the west end of the rodeo grounds.
