“Rez Life 101 is a non-stereotypical, non-trendy way to revisit the work of Douglas Miles and Apache Skateboards. Filmed & Directed by Brandan Odums, he captures whats basically an art/skate movement without hype, institutional racist dogma or pandering to any mainstream ideations of what Indian people should be.
Native people have been told who we are for over 500 years. The time has come for us to define ourselves, by ourselves. Our own ideas, concepts, social and creative constructs whether seen or unseen remain unique and valid. We need NO validation from the mainstream whatsoever. What we do demand is respect and honesty with regard to our history and presence without pretense or pity.”
