Message from the President:
I am looking forward to serving as your next NNRA President for the 2015-2016 season. My Family sends you blessings for a delightful and peaceful New Year. First and foremost, I would like to thank Mr. Harrison Tsosie and his administration for a job well done and dedicated service to NNRA for the past 4 years. My goal is to build a strong foundation with the JR rodeo associations across the Navajo Nation. I strongly believe they are the back bone to the sport. NNRA will continue to strive and promote the Indian National Finals Rodeo to the best of its ability. The mission of NNRA is to be dedicated and practice hard. My staff is ready to produce the best rodeo season for you. In addition, I ask for your prayers and support for success in the upcoming seasons in this fine sport we call rodeo. We have already been working to move forward into the 2015 rodeo season.
God Bless and Good Luck!
Alvin Smith, President
