Bolivian Men Fight for Good Harvest (at least they fight for harvest, not as gladiators!)


Men and boys from neighboring villages fight each other in Bolivia’s annual Tinku festival. They believe these bouts please the spirits, and the strongest fighter will bring his village a good harvest. Spilled blood is seen as an offering to the spirits.
