Here's a TV show on weapons fighting the Indonesian Sumba tribe and a San Francisco Bay Area tribe .
Videotaped in High Definition, so look for the HD channel.

National Geographic Taboo
Season IV, Episode 5 "Proving Ground"
http://channel.nationalgeographic.com/channel/ET/daily/20070822.html  (Eastern time)
http://channel.nationalgeographic.com/channel/PT/daily/20070822.html  (Pacific time)

This is the Pacific Time schedule, so add three hours for Eastern Time:
Wednesday  August 22, 2007, 7 pm and 10 pm
Saturday      August 25, 12pm
Wednesday  August 29, 2007, 3 pm

In some cultures men prove their manhood by enduring pain. Get a pass into an American Fight Club, where some successful, educated males engage in physical combat to test their manhood, using anything to attack - blunted knives, chairs, sticks, even soda cans. On the remote Indonesian island of Sumba, hundreds of men take part in a time-honored event known as the Pasola. Facing off in two teams on horseback, they charge toward each other hurling spears.

This is *not* the eagerly-awaited Dog Brother National Geographic episode of the HUGE June 2007 Gathering.  You may notice some familiar faces in the Taboo show:  "Baltic Dog" Gints, "C-Devil Dog" Milt Tinkoff and "C-Space Dog" Rog Tinkoff, which are considered to be a Northern California clan of the Dog Brothers.

Heya,

Any chance that those of us who don't get Nat Geo can track down a copy?

I've straightened out the schedule for the show, and it's available on cable and DISH satellite.

I'll post a link to the show afterwards.
