SKATEBOARD PROJECT CELEBRATES INDIGENOUS ARTWORK
The Skateboard Project is an initiative that aims to promote Indigenous artwork, physical activity, and collaboration between cultural centers across multiple Indigenous communities.
In its second year, Kahnawà:ke, Kanehsatà:ke, Kenhtè:ke, Ahkwesáhsne and Six Nations came together to create 7 skateboards graphics showcasing the range of styles and cultural imagery. Two artists from Ahkwesáhsne participated this year. Joseph King was commissioned by the NNATC and Ian Clute was commissioned by MCA’s Department of Economic Development.
Skateboard culture values inclusivity, individuality, creativity, and freedom and blending these with Indigenous traditions has created a project that connects communities through local art and skateboarding.
We hope to see more Indigenous communities being part of the project in the future!
