PENDLETON, Oregon — Miss Indian World Taylor Thomas participated in the Pendleton Round-Up Westward Ho parade over the weekend.
She said her participation in the parade was at the request of her late uncle Delbert Farmer to represent the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes.
Her uncles Fort Hall Business Council Chairman Nathan Small, James Tone and Leo Teton rode in the parade with her. Thomas said the parade is huge with people cheering along the parade route and announcers throughout.
Thomas was also able to attend the Happy Canyon Pageant.
In addition she rode alongside the Confederated Tribes of Umatilla Chiefs in a horse pulled wagon during the arena parade that she said was a huge honor for her.
