Oglala Lakota Indian cowboy, Chancy Wilson of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota, is our guest this week on Word With A Champ. Chancy is part owner and general manager of a newly formed Muddy Creek and Nixon ProRodeo Company LLC. Chancy’s dreams of becoming a major league company raising bucking horses and bulls are starting to materialize. We enjoyed the visit of a very ambitious young man that is also a tribal councilman and family man, that is willing to work hard to obtain his goals in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association.
Wylie Petersen, Shoshone-Bannock, PBR World famous bull rider, is our guest this week on Word With A Champ. In the third of a three-part series, Wylie discusses his decision to retire from riding bulls, to become a physician’s assistant, serving his community and fellow man. It has been our honor and pleasure to share the thoughts of such an intelligent man, that has the heart to be a champion bull rider, as well as caring for individuals on a one on one basis in the Indian health care system. Thank you Wylie, Pictured with my daughter Raelynn Rose Taylor.
