Agua Caliente Skateboards

We'd like to fly (or skate) to the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C., to see a newly opened exhibit called Ramp it Up: Skateboard Culture in Native America.
Ramp it Up, on view through Sept. 13, "celebrates the vibrancy, creativity, and controversy of American Indian skate culture," according to the museum. 
Among the skateboarders celebrated are 10-year-old Augustin and 7-year-old Armondo Lerma (Agua Caliente Band).
"The museum is eager to show how Indian Country has embraced and changed skateboard culture in America," museum director Kevin Gover says in a press release.
