Rough Riding: Navajo Cowboys

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kn2GOdwc_DI[/youtube]Independent media company Vice recently aired a beautiful, wild series about the lives of the Navajo (Diné) cowboys on their VBS.TV site.  These were all “Triple B Association” riders, meaning they competed in a bronc, bull, and barrel-racing league.   More than 56 percent of Navajos live below the poverty line, with unemployment climbing to above 50 percent.  Yet the Navajo retain vibrant cultural traditions, leading family-oriented and spiritual lives, and the rodeo offers them a measure of national exposure.

Vice’s documentary is worth watching, not only for the hair raising Triple B competition but for the colorful, and proud, Navajo Cowboys that are its focus.
