I am a huge fan of grappling and I cannot think of a more beautiful thing then indigenous peoples expressing their culture via wrestling. Our friends over at Wrestling Roots have run into a bit of a road block and are making a call for help. Check them out on the web as well as on FB:
This picture is entitled "Navajo wrestling."
Does anyone have any more information on this photo? Are there
rules/history written somewhere that I have not found yet regarding any
Native American wrestling forms?
Please keep this photo moving.
I am hoping that one of our readers has a family member, friend,
neighbor, etc... that has some primary information regarding traditional
indigenous wrestling within the USA.
I would like to use the
Wrestling Roots website as a collection point for any stories,
photographs, or bibliographies that we can uncover. If you have any
information that can help, or can point us in the right direction, feel
free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org"
