In collaboration with director Greg Hunt, Stronghold Society, and the Pine Ridge Oglala Lakota community, Levi's has just released a mini-documentary chronicling skateboard culture on the South Dakota reservation. The Stronghold Society is a non-profit organization created by Walt Pourier (Oglala Lakota) empowers youths of Native and non-Native communities with skateboarding and other athletic activities. "We want to see a change on this reservation. We want to see people living again. And we're doing it through skateboarding."

Their efforts to build two skateparks and foster healthy youth communities is eloquently conveyed; the awe-inspiring narrative and landscapes of Pine Ridge are complimented with an original score by Slint's David Pajo, and a never before heard Cat Power song "Anthem." Watch the short below and share in the energizing movement #SkateboardingSavesLives.
