Definition of Hero: A hero refers to characters who, in the face of adversity, display courage and the will for
self-sacrifice—that is, heroism—for some greater good of all humanity. This definition originally referred to
martial courage or excellence but extended to more general moral excellence.

The Oklahoma Kid taught 507 people to trick rope in California. The group
gathered outside The Autry Western Heritage Museum in Los Angeles to set a
World Record for the Largest Group of Trick Ropers Ever to Perform. This
was made possible with the help of Ben Fitzsimons and The Autry staff. Kid
has been traveling the United States performing and teaching trick roping for
over a decade.
The Oklahoma Kid, is a fourth generation Wild West
Show performer with relative ties to Will Rogers. He is
also a humorist and all-around motivational speaker.
More than 100 years of family history have prepared him
for his career of entertainment combined with a unique
historical perspective. Kid's father, grandfather and
great-grandfather worked with Pawnee Bill's Wild West
Show, and he grew up in Ponca City, home of the
historic 101 Ranch. He's also related to Will Rogers in
his grandmother's generation. Performance genes have
trickled down through the generations and are clearly
evident when you see him speak and perform. Kid
travels worldwide speaking and demonstrating rope
tricks for all kinds of venues from half time sports
games to banquets to rodeos. Kid has appeared at
about every type of gathering known to man. Last year
alone Kid appeared in places like New York, LA and
even Washington D.C. For 2015 Kid kicked off his tour at
the Oklahoma State Capital supporting David and Molly
Boren Mentoring Initiative. It is always a full year for the
Kid and but he always makes time to visit our youth in
schools and libraries, hospitals and the homeless. I love
people and I love Oklahoma, the Kid said. I try to give a
good image for our fine state. I like to see things happen
in the world that won't happen by us sitting around.
Marty Tipton and the Cowboy Way
by Jenna Lomeli · July 14, 2014
Marty Tipton is about as close as one can get to the American cowboy of yore
this side of the year 2000. And while his cowboy hat and boots, and even his
livelihood as a professional trick roper add to this conception, the similarities
extend beyond the standard cowboy imagery. Tipton has a larger-than-life
quality to him, telling stories in his friendly Oklahoma twang that seem
believable enough but also carry with them a sense of the fantastic that
belongs in a dime novel. Continue reading.......
