ON THE REZ WITH THE LAKOTA SKATE CLUB

“By becoming skateboarders, kids join a worldwide community of all different types of people who accept you for who you are. It’s creative and inspires a unique, alternative perspective. While being inherently mischievous, it also creates a work ethic. It teaches kids to set and achieve goals. In every way, it makes a kid feel good about him or herself, with a constant yearning toward self-improvement, which is something that extends much further than merely the act of hopping around on a four-wheeled toy.”

2015 ONE GATHERING – SKATE FOR LIFE

Denver March Powwow

It was a great weekend for us in our Stronghold Society outreach efforts. For us it is about a community coming together and sharing in our “grand ideas”… meeting with all our supporters/friends and gaining new supporters/friends… the outreach was huge, as we connected with hundreds of people. It also gives us an opportunity to showcase new Stronghold support product, which helps us to fundraise for our LIVE LIFE programs. The new “support gear” will be posted here on our online store in case you missed the powwow. Once again, great year at the Denver March Powwow, we love this event.

Comic Creation Stories

In February, we hosted a class for Native youth on Comic Creation Stories. About twelve students learned the basics to storytelling and comic book illustration in this unique and fun workshop taught by Kristina Bad Hand. It was our first Stronghold Society Art Gathering held at the McNichol’s Building in Denver and was a great success. We’d like to thank Kristina for sharing her talent and Tim Taylor for the use of the room in the McNichol’s Building. We hope to have more Art Gatherings in the near future, so check back soon!
