Skateboarding Is Not A Crime

Skateboarding truly transcends all boundaries – check out the “Ramp It Up: Skateboard Culture In Native America” exhibit opening at NMAI in DC Friday.  It’ll include archival photos, films, and skatedecks.  I interviewed documentary filmmaker Dustinn Craig (White Mountain Apache/Navajo) about his thoughts on the Native American skate culture, as well as his filmmaking – go here to read the interview and watch Craig’s film 4wheelwarpony.
