THE MISSION OF WSIRA IS TO PROMOTE AND KEEP THE SPORT OF INDIAN RODEO ALIVE. WITH THIS MISSION IN MIND THE MANY RODEOS HELD THROUGHOUT THE WESTERN STATES ARE PROMOTING AND WORKING WITH YOUTH. YOUTH EVENTS HAVE BEEN INCORPORATED INTO THE VARIOUS RODEOS AND OUR WORLD CHAMPIONS HAVE BECOME TEACHERS AND MENTORS.
WESTERN STATES INDIAN RODEO ASSOCIATION (WSIRA) IS COMPRISED OF THE STATES OF OREGON, NEVADA, CALIFORNIA AND IDAHO AND HAS BEEN AFFLIATED WITH THE INDIAN NATIONAL FINALS RODEO COMMISSION SINCE ITS INCEPTION OVER 39 YEARS AGO.
The state of Washington was recently removed from the WSIRA Region for the 2nd time in the last 15 years. Although it was not the desire of WSIRA to split the region it was done by the INFR in what they felt was in the best interest of the INFR. Just because the State of Washington is its own Region does not mean that you have to change or choose their region. If you would like to you can still claim WSIRA as your home region, IT IS YOUR CHOICE. There are some angry people and there are some happy. What ever your feeling please refrain from blaming WSIRA or gossiping about us being kicked out of the INFR because that is not true.
WSIRA IS STRONG AND STILL HAVE THIER LOYAL RODEO COMMITTEES and look forward to an AWESOME 2014 rodeo season.
