A woman from Dancing Eagles dance troupe from the Osage and Creek tribes performs a dance. Horse relays are one of the most popular pastimes in Native American culture to have survived the U.S. genocide, and horse heritage remains strong with many tribes in the western United States. But equine traditions have been less durable in Oklahoma, where many Native Americans were resettled in the Trail of Tears of the 1830s, when indigenous people were forced from their lands in the southeast onto specially designated territories further west.

A rider mounts his horse during the "horse exchange" at an Indian relay race. Organizer Jim Stevens called the relay the biggest in the known history of Indian Relay races in terms of tribes, people and vendors signed up to participate. About 40 tribes competed for $140,000 in prize money. "This was the first big event for the Native Americans since the COVID shutdown and everybody was ready to get off the reservation," Stevens said.
