The Mystery of Now

17 mins


The San Carlos Reservation in southeast Arizona is known by the dubious nickname of “Hell’s Forty Acres.” Today, though, pride, creativity and expression are vibrant among its young people. And much of that is thanks to the unifying force of Apache Skateboards, founded by Douglas Miles Sr. — an artist and community leader whose stony countenance belies a font of wisdom. This gritty, mystical profile of Miles shines a light on a community where art, agency, faith, skateboarding and tradition have planted the seeds of resurrection.
