Supporting traditional rodeo in South Dakota

Posted by Keystone XL


The Keystone XL Project is committed to giving back to the communities in which we work and live. Keystone XL Community Investment dollars were awarded to the Kadoka Rodeo program to assist with promoting their first PRCA Rodeo, which was held on June 25-27, 2020.  The community of Kadoka is located in Jackson County, South Dakota, along the Keystone XL pipeline route.

Kadoka is rich in rodeo tradition, dating back to the early 70s, but some of this tradition has faded over the years.

“Rodeos are the driving force in our small agriculture community and we are working hard to bring these traditions back, bigger and stronger, said Jamie Willert, Chairman of the Buffalo Stampede Rodeo.

While this year’s rodeo was a great success, the Stampede Rodeo Committee will not sit idle as they work to continue to update facilities and grow promotional opportunities to ensure this PRCA Rodeo becomes an annual event.

These community investment monies were vital for us to reach our goals, including bridging the generation gap between our young kids and those rodeo legends from the past.”
