Abstract

We analyze the historic, symbolic, and cultural meaning of jaripeo (bull-riding) practiced in the United States by the indigenous purhepecha who originate from Cheran, Michoacan, Mexico. We consider the “uses”, traditions, and customs that have been recently taken up again, and brought from the community of origin to the other side, inside their cultural baggage. Bull-riding events are carried out on special occasions to show their ethnic identity.
