`Skateboarding In Pine Ridge´A Skate Park built at the South Dakota Reservation

This touching documentary directed by Greg Hunt and presented by Levi´s Skateboarding shows how skating is giving young adults new perspectives, bringing them together and taking them away from the harsh reality living in a reservation. Pine Ridge in South Dakota maybe only known through media as an impoverished community with a drug and alcohol epidemic and teen suicide rates seven to ten times greater than the National average, but when the Levi’s team came to visit and helped to build a skate park they were seeing a community transform and through skateboarding they were giving a generation of young American Indians a new identification and strength to grow as a collective.
