Rodeo at Ak-Chin Indian Community’s Masik Tas always includes a junior rodeo for Native American children, and this year was no exception. The many competitive events included mutton bustin’, roping, stick-horse races and bull riding. Though a light-hearted affair overall, a teen was reported to have been seriously injured in the bull riding and was transported from the rodeo grounds to a medical center. The main rodeo continued Sunday morning with jackpot team roping.
