The proposed "hall of fame" is being spearheaded by Ken Peterson, one of the founding members of the Navajo Rodeo Historical Society.
"The main purpose of the organization is to help preserve the history and background of Navajo Indian rodeo," Peterson said. "It's basically the rodeos that took place on the Navajo Reservation going back to the 1950s and so on."
Like most rodeo historical societies, Peterson said the intent of the group is to help "educate the general public on the impact rodeo has on the lives of the Native people."
