Witness Heart Racing Miccosukee Alligator Wrestling Shows • A true display of man versus nature! Alligator Wrestling is done by Miccosukee Tribal members and our World Famous Miccosukee Alligator show is the very best of its kind that you and your loved ones can witness. The age-old art of Alligator Wrestling is a tradition that has been handed down through generations by Miccosukee Indians in order to teach each other how to hunt for alligator by themselves without weapons. The methods used by the Miccosukee Indians allow them to hunt the alligator with respect and compassion for the animal and nature. The ALL NEW Alligator Encounter (Price NOT included in admission ticket) • Come and get a heavy dose of adventure and fun as you experience The Alligator Encounter at the Miccosukee Indian Village. For an additional price, have a Miccosukee Alligator Wrestler teach you how to respectfully touch and mount a large size Florida Alligator. You will never be witness to anything close to this experience. Have you ever had a Miccosukee Tribal member teach you the art of Alligator Wrestling? Have you ever touched and mounted a live large size Florida Alligator…and lived to tell the story? This year you will have a chance to experience the Alligator Encounter during the festival.
