Tia Potts

Tia Potts, the daughter of Tyrone Potts (North Peigan Reserve) and Denise Healy (Blood Reserve) in southern Alberta, has been barrel racing since childhood. Tia has competed successfully in All Indian Rodeos. Originally owned and worn by her mother Denise, this black hat has brought luck to many members of the Potts family.
