    Default native wrestling styles videos

    The German IWF (a scientific institute for documentary films of all kinds ? nature, society...) began recently to add previews to the items in the film catalog.

    In its collection, IWF has around 20 films on native/folk styles. It already added previews of the films on wrestling of Nuba and Kaba in Africa and of ?Xingu Indians? in Amazonia.

    Here you can watch the previews of 2 films on Nuba wrestling

    Nuba in Kordofan, Sudan, 1963

    Nuba in Khartum, Sudan, 1989
    http://www.iwf.de/iwf/do/mkat/detail...ignatur=D+1774


    The 1963 film shows the Nuba in their native areas in Kordofan.
    The 1989 film shows the ?modernization? - Nuba migrants in the capital Khartoum.

    Compare also the pictures in this gallery of Nuba Wrestling in Khartoum in 2006:

The 'Quarup' is a ritual performed by the Indians of the Xingu region in Brazil in homage to their dead. In this ceremony, they not only honor past heroes, but also seek to pass on their virtues to the younger generations, keeping them alive in the spirit and practices of the tribe.
