Aaron Tsinigine

Aaron Tsinigine is the 2015 PRCA World Champion team roping header from the Navajo Nation’s Tuba City, Arizona.

Tsinigine qualified for his first Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in 2014, ranked 14th in the world. By the end of Round 10, he had won enough to end the year as the No. 3 header in the world standings, signaling good things to come in his team roping career.

When Tsinigine returned to the Wrangler NFR with Ryan Motes on the heels in 2015, he claimed his World Championship title and the coveted gold buckle after winning rounds 1, 3, 6 (tied) and 10, and topping the world standings with $227,672 in PRCA earnings.

In 2023, Tsinigine was again roping with Ryan Motes when he became a $1 million roper. He is competing in 2024 with more than $1,175,000 in lifetime earnings.
