ImillaSkate - Indigenous Bolivian Skate Collective
« on: June 02, 2022, 06:43:28 AM »
Came across this in my Instagram feed. I don't think it fits under the "crazy instagram clip" thread, but maybe it does? I think it's better here.

Imillaskate is a 9 person collective of indigenous Bolivian skaters who skate while wearing traditional Andean attire to bring awareness about their history.

Link to the National Geographic Article (Kind of a long read):

https://www.nationalgeographic.com/history/article/these-bolivian-skateboarders-use-indigenous-attire-to-battle-discrimination

I honestly feel some type of way about giving National Geographic shine since they've got such a suspect history. But I think it's cool that this group is getting coverage because honestly they're not the type of group that traditionally would...Torn like Natalie Imbruglia.

Cool gave them a follow also. Nice to see Ryan Lay and Eman Grizzle following them also. I probably would have put this thread in UWTB just to give them more attention.

Ah, will do next time. Lol. Thanks for the heads up! Is it worth moving it?
