Jackson Sundown

By KingBee
A bronze in Pendleton, Oregon, commemorating Jackson Sundown , a famous Nez Perce rodeo man and an excellent horseman.

The Nez Perce were renowned for their mastery of horses and Sundown learned how to breed and raise horses at an early age. He subsequently made his living around horses and also performed in many rodeos in the Northwest US and Canada. In 1916, at the age of 53, he won the rodeo World Championship at Pendleton, the circumstances of which are the stuff of legend.

Jackson Sundown died in 1923, of pneumonia. At the time of his death, the U.S. Government did not consider Native Americans to be American Citizens.
