Today etnies announces the release of its video edit on the team’s trip to skate with the Apache Nation skate community. Watch the video featuring a mix of etnies team riders and local Apache skaters including etnies Skate Team Manager Aidan Campbell, Gabryel Aguilar (Brazil), Malachi Gray (USA), Taylor Nye (USA), Evan Tancredi (Canada), Doug Miles Jr. (Apache/USA) and Darrius Hutton (USA)
etnies was proud to accept the invitation by Douglas Miles Sr., artist, muralist, and owner of Apache Skateboards, to visit the Apache Nation Reservation and skate their new skatepark. The San Carlos Apache Reservation was established in 1871, with the many bands of Apache spanning three counties in eastern Arizona.
While the team was on the Apache Nation Reservation, they were hosted by Doug Miles Jr., met with tribal leaders, and even got to taste the infamous Apache burger.
Chairman Rambler’s Secretary and Apache Nation Skatepark Committee Member Naelyn Pike shared that she believes both the Apache community and skateboard community have resilience.
It is safe to say spending time on the Apache Nation Reservation was a highlight of the team’s trip to the PHXAM. etnies Flow Rider Darrius Hutton said:
“It was honestly an amazing opportunity to be able to experience the culture and get to know all those amazing people! The vibes were great, and I was thankful for the tour around to see the scenery and skate spots!”
