This bull riding documentary created by Vice follows the story of 16 year old Bo Tyler Vocu, a third generation Native American professional bull rider who risks life an limb every time he goes to compete in his sport. Like everyone in the sport he is hoping to make right of passage in becoming world champion, no easy task since he has suffered numerous injuries including two broken hips already in pursuit of the dream which was passed down from Bo’s grandad.


The third episode in the Rites of Passage documentary series catches up with the Vocu family as they head to an important bull fighting competition in the state of Oklahoma. It demonstrates what practice techniques and pre-competition rituals are used to prepare themselves for being a contender for what is considered to be one of the most dangerous and controversial sports on Earth.
