Skateboarding in Pine Ridge
Pine Ridge is an Indian Reservation in South Dakota and is among the poorest counties in the USA. The reservation is the site of several tragic milestones in the history between the Sioux and the US government and it is evident that century old bloodshed still has ripple effects on today’s society.
Skateboarding in Pine Ridge chronicles a skatepark build and the life of the Lakota youth. Thanks to the work of the Stronghold Society, an organisation dedicated to empowering youth, the youngsters have found a focus and have something to look forward to.
