Good day! My name is Oriana Lopez. I am from the Comobabi Village of the Schuk Toak District located on the Great Tohono O’odham Nation. I am the 23 year old daughter of Sharon Francisco and the granddaughter of Nick Francisco and the late Minnie Francisco. I am a graduate from Arizona State University as I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in Health Sciences with aspirations to further my education onto medical school.

My passion for the sport of rodeo began when I was four years old as I was gifted my first horse. Since then I have competed in pole bending, breakaway and barrels. The sport of rodeo has taught me the appreciation and the positive impact in transforming me into today's ambassador. I grew up on a family ranch with teachings passed down to me from my grandpa who I continue to admire greatly.

Outside of rodeo, I enjoy traveling across the state of Arizona to participate competitively in distance runs held both on and off reservations. I also enjoy reading and spending time with both my family and friends.

As your 2020 Miss Indian Rodeo, I am the official ambassador of the Indian National Finals Rodeo, Indian Professional Rodeo and all Native American tribes throughout North American and First Nations of Canada. I am truly excited and humbled to represent Indian country in the sport of rodeo to the best of my ability as this has been a dream of mine that I hold very close to my heart. I look forward to meeting you all throughout the many miles to be traveled.

Sapo!
Thank you!
2020 Miss Indian Rodeo, Oriana Lopez
