Run like an Indian: Thinking outside the (Shoe) Box

Born to Run, from 2009, rediscovered the descendants of the ancient Aztec runner society, the Tarahumara. Most who are truly into running have read this by now. But the Tarahumara were not the only tribal runners who held on to their traditions into our times. Many Southwest American Indian tribes had runners that were equal to those from any period in human history; but most books on these subjects are either by westerners who are knowledgable about running or Indians – not both. This takes a closer look at other Native American cultures with a runner’s eye for techniques that enabled them to do what seems utterly impossible to us today. There are insights here sometimes interpolating or reconstructing some of their lost techniques, most of which have not been mentioned in print since the early 1900’s.
