Justin Darrow is the first Mohawk to ever compete in a World Cup skateboarding event.
Although getting there took a lot of cuts and bruises.
Darrow says these harsh lessons through concrete and gravity have real life applications.
“You learn a lot of things about yourself, about perseverance how to deal with skating through pain, putting in hard work to succeed, even through countless failures, and it’s all worth it, even if you just land a trick once,” says Darrow.
Now Darrow wants to encourage other Indigenous youth to take up the sport.
