Will Rogers Day

Celebrated in the state of Oklahoma to honor the rope-tricking cowboy and all-around entertainer, who was born in what would become Oklahoma in 1879. His rope tricks eventually led to a career on Broadway and in the movies. Rogers later became a popular broadcaster and syndicated newspaper columnist. Born on a large ranch in the Cherokee Nation, near what would become Oologah, Oklahoma, Rogers was taught by a former slave how to use a lasso as a tool to work Texas longhorn cattle.
