How Indigenous skateboarders use their boards for creative expression and land reclamation
"Neighbor down the street was like, what do you like skateboarding? So much I was like Yo, check this out kick flipped I try and I was like see that that's like magic to me. That's a magic trick that just happened in like I get to do that over and over and again, and I get to do other magistrates to been like. So that's why I love it. That was Blakey White Cloud. He has spent a lot of time at skate parks whether he skateboarding or making documentaries about indigenous skateboarding for both CBC and a t N.. Here's a bit from the dock he produced for CBC arts called how the art of Skateboarding can also be an act of empowerment. Me skateboarding gave me the voice of community. You can stay when you're sad you're mad depressed and at the end of the day to day mind. So clear. PARTICI-. Relaxing it's almost meditation. Gave me pretty much everything down to like personal confidence. gave me a wave. Accomplished something I never thought I could do we concentrate so hard on town nail one trick and determined that you want it I went to have it feels awesome but you build up to your bruise you blood for the phone for A. Thank. God. That was a clip from how the art of skateboarding can also be an active empowerment a documentary by Khawaga Blakey. White cloud. So, Khawaga. What is it about skateboarding that you love the most the thing I love skateboarding the most is the visceral reaction when you lend something that you thought of that, you self actualized that you were like, I wonder if I could do this or your friend was like I wonder if you could do this and then you're like I don't know if I do this and then you know you try it and you might not make it and you're like Oh. Maybe if I shift my feet a little bit differently and then Lo and behold, you make it and you're just like like your hair stands up on ends you just like. People might. Be Cheering for unions. And so like that's what I love most about it is that kind of visceral passionate? Yes. Did it. So, what would you say is the relationship between indigenous people and skateboarding that's like an interesting one because I think it's unique to every person. But in my case, it was definitely the getting kicked out of private property and like having a discussion about like, oh, like let's have a discussion about treaties, Mike and Private property right and then some people just refuse to do it and then other listen they're like, Whoa, like you have a really good point. Right. So there's that and then also the kind of spiritual aspect of being out on the land like hanging out like outside all day and. Doing something that's leading to a good life, right like that like your emotional health like you're getting all that out your physical mental, your occupational like just the way you're spending your time. You know you're you're doing something really good with your life, your environmental rate you're hanging outside and your intellectual being challenged all the time to break because sometimes a trick isn't working out like you're just like Oh. Maybe just move my feet like just a little bit back and then like. It happens and you're just like Oh my God that was the key right. So yeah. So all these things like all of them are challenged. All get amplified and you just feel like a way healthier. Person Afterwards and I think like that's kind of pushed through in like we talk about health from an indigenous perspective like it's not just like your physical health rate and it's like all these other aspects of it that we don't necessarily talk about but that that comes to you and skateboarding And you said it's. Like reconciliation in reality. What do you? What do you mean by that? There's a long history like along colonial history that we've never. Really. been taught through the regular education system nor in the media and it's missing from a lot of the discussions around what does it mean to be indigenous into Canadian society when we start talking about like oh You know skating on your private property, but this is actually true one and like the best example was getting kicked out of the Manitoba Hydro Building by an employee he was like Oh like you should get out of here and I was like we will in five minutes. All respect and he's like, no, you need to get out of here. Now they don't you know who paid for all this and I was like well, like no Manitoba Hydro derived a lot of its profits from like indigenous lands. Expropriated and then they really properly compensated them. So as indigenous person like I think the right to be here and like he had no clue to say to that right like he was just like he just put up his hands and he turned around left and I was like that's right like you're talking to somebody who's like who has an idea of what the history is and I know that deep down inside you know what the history is and so. Like let's acknowledge that but to some people like they don't want knowledge it right like just like him. He didn't want acknowledged he just wants to run and go grab the security but I think like the more we have these discussions the more we come to a clarity of like what's actually happened and what needs to happen in order to move forward for justice for indigenous peoples in Canadian society.

He's getting a lot of these calls so hopefully he's not tired of answering Tom. Blakey how are you? I'm okay grappling with the shutdown. Like everyone else. Yeah what is your work from home situation? She asks while sitting in her closet so he answers while sitting in my in my bedroom where we have three small kids. So you know. That's a challenge and we live in the city of DC so there is no great backyard for them to run around in so they bounce around the house. More or less like excited molecules at this so we have officially made it to April. Felt like we would never get here. Longest MARCH ON RECORD. I believe is the expert opinion. Do you think April is going to be worse than March April in the United States will definitely be worse than March? That's because by and large it takes about three weeks for people to start showing clinical symptoms so starting to get physically ill from having contracted the virus. It spreads as everyone knows at this point exponentially with a lot of cases occurring among people who have unreported infections. So I wanna ask you about something that I keep seeing people arguing about on social media even though I'm trying to avoid some of this stuff pretty pretty hard but do you feel like we have to choose between saving the economy and saving lives. No I think saving lives or more specifically keeping people from getting infected is really the only way to save the economy. The reality of this is is that we are not going practically to be able to go back to work until we get this back under control so the best economic policy. We have is health policy. At this moment we can have a bad. Economic impact of this pandemic with good policies will still end up there or we could have a much worse. Economic impact of these with bad health policies plus all lives lost. And I choose the former. But I've heard people say that if we don't spend money saving the economy. Many more lives could be lost in the long run due to recession. So do recessions kill people? They do recessions. Do Kill people. There have been a number of studies that looked at the great recession. We saw health impacts deeply for men and racial and ethnic minorities and it ranged from a lot of our Diseases of despair that exists out there already in terms of suicide or alcohol or substance abuse traffic fatalities safe harm declining fertility. You name it. You see that in recessions and we just saw a dozen years ago so we're going to see that again but again. The option here is not preventing recession by allowing this virus. Free Rein to run rampant. It's we want this to be a shorter recession or we want this to be a deeper and longer recession so the idea is to focus sort of on the immediate and the short term and that will help naturally the long-term absolutely know China's starting head back to work South Korea which had its first case the same day the United States head. Its first case is back to work. You know we can do this. We got off to an awfully slow start but it can be done in the sooner we can do it. The better for us both from an economic and health perspective. So I've read that half. The national stockpile of ventilators has already been sent out. Which sounds really scary. So if we want to stimulate the economy and fight the pandemic at the same time. I don't really understand why we can't put more people to work making masks the protective gear the ventilator is the things we need so we can but we need to mandate this. They're going to be still supply chain issues about. Can we make all the components? Can we get all that but you know we can manage that? What is difficult to manage is to be doing this in April instead of doing it in January February. You've in early March. So what choices has the US made in situations like this in the past? Are there any past success stories? We can emulate USO in the past in World War Two and in the Korean War. We granted the executive branch broad authority to regulate industry so that we could ramp up supplies that are needed for the nation's offense. We are in that kind of moment now. The president is talking about doing that this week. On a limited basis. And that's great and I'm glad for it and we should but we are awfully late for this wave but here's one thing. I do emphasize unfortunately. Is that even when we get this under control? This isn't going away. This is just the first wave of this now. If we can manage to get ahead of it we can do what some other nations have done which is have good surveillance and testing and really minimize the effect of future waves. But until there's a vaccine are really effective therapeutic set can reduce people from getting sick from this. We're going to keep seeing waves at this point. There're more than a million cases globally. It's a virus said isn't going to go away. There's signs that it's going to go away with weather so ramping up production is good for those second ways. I'd just wish we had done it earlier. So is good for this wave two. So has the timeline on a vaccine. Become any clear so it's a year and a year and a half away. That's what we're looking at. The other thing to know about the vaccine is once we have it. We still have to make it in the kind of volumes that can address people's needs you know how do we do that? But even once back scene becomes available. We'll take a little time for everyone to get it so I shouldn't be pending all my hopes to that vaccine Not In the short term in the long term. I'm a believer in human innovation. What I do think you need for that to have. Its effect is realistic and honest. Assessment of the challenges we face in the urgency in addressing them. But when you have that I fundamentally believe in us to have that innovation to address that we just need to mobilize it sooner than we have been. What does the endgame of this pandemic look like to you? The medium-term and people should be honest about this. So I'm going to try to be in. This podcast is that you know even in countries that have done well with this. They're still seeing cases. They get cases from people returning from abroad with infections like sparks. You know you need to control before they set off at wildfire. That's going to be the reality for a year or two years with this virus that we will have that risk so it. This is not going to immediately go back to the way it was. That's the medium-term this the long term is there only really to either. We develop a vaccine or at least sixty percent of the population needs to become immune the challenge with the latter route. Is it will come at a great human cost so I would like to bet on the former.

O. ours are giant of Philly at New York City which beams all over the east coast right now tell us a little bit about the history of the future we're going to dive into a talking about some specific people but give me an overall view. so this in the future it's about the you know the subtitles oculus Facebook in the quest for virtual reality but from my perspective and you know what the listeners are very familiar with virtual reality or don't know the first thing about it that's okay because I always want everything I write to be you know acceptable to anybody I was right with my grandmother in mind and what really appealed to me about the story was just a you know I set up to tell a story sort of checking on the state of the American dream circa twenty twelve twenty fourteen and and you know it for me the story was about this nineteen year old kid named Palmer Luckey who was at the time living in a trailer in Long Beach California he was obsessed with virtual reality which was technology that was essentially like you know treated like a punch line like flying cars and jet packs the thing that was supposed to happen the sci fi tropes that never really did but Palmer was obsessed with it he had gotten honest trailer to basically be this mad scientist later and he was building all these headsets and he ended up building a prototype headset that was much better and much cheaper than everything else out in the world and then within that you know start a company called oculus less than two years later they sold the Facebook for about three million dollars and then a couple years after that he got fired for reasons that have nothing to do with virtual reality and really change my book and was really trust strange but you know he he's one fascinating brilliant guy and his quest to resurrect virtual reality was was really what drew me and this idea of trying to bring back up I thought to be lost technology and you know see see how the American dream is doing at this point in time there was a lot of controversy over his dismissal some say it was because of his supporter from Donald Trump at the time Facebook denies it says has nothing to do with his politics but they never really cited a reason why they let him down but they did by his business and apparently he made about seven hundred million dollars under the deal what do you think. it is very well you know not right now he's only twenty five years old it's really amazing I remember the first time that I met him after I was given access and I he's he we always sort of storyteller out and he said you know I I don't know if I'm going to give you all the stories and I said okay I'll try to get them as I don't give them but you mind my asking why not and he said well you know and I will write a book myself when I'm much older and I say like. you know we're like thirty when I'm really really old right. but he's kinda needling me a bit he's a he's a very charismatic guy but I'll tell you one thing that you know I find you know but I think that most readers will find Palmer endearing and find what happened to him inspiring from Facebook to be a real travesty but you know he's one of those people that has it has barely changed since since the money he certainly hasn't changed in terms of lifestyle he's you know whenever I go out to sea and we usually McDonalds and other fast foods he he he said he told me that you know the only like this really changes that if he's you know he's building products in inventing things and you know now held by the two thousand dollar part instead of trying to craft one at home it is not the trailer go anymore his he. these are not only bought a nice house for himself in in southern California but also bought one for his parents so he's a good sign yeah I was like this really changed I'm sure we'll get into all that but it it's just crazy to think where you started this kid with a dream focused on this technology that you know I'm thirty six years old and and I remember when I was growing up if you had pulled me aside in the mid nineties when I was you know a young teenager and said you know how how big a part of the future is virtual reality can be as they used to be huge and you know lawn mower managers come out at the mall they had all these B. R. installations and it seems like a really big deal this thing that was about to happen and it just didn't yeah he just faded away and then I guess it's storming back and we're gonna talk about how Facebook value this company that two plus billion dollars for crying out loud yeah we are you was he generating a lot of revenue at the time. no I mean essentially Kickstarter was was there first way to generate money and and you know they obviously had crowd funding you know the crowd funding sites so money was coming in but it was essentially just a way for people to buy a prototype headset of the oculus rift three dollars and they sold out I think the select two thousand on the Kickstarter they they ended up raising a few million of the man of selling ten thousand but through their website but you know they weren't certainly they they weren't ringing in the revenues along the lines of what Facebook for three billion dollar price and that yes you know there's there's the first chapter of the book starts with the day of the acquisition I was able to get access to like a pirate never before seen video of mark Zuckerberg addressing the team and and he explains why he wanted to acquire them in part of the reason was that he felt like he had missed out on mobile maybe is because Facebook you know didn't really start to feel that. too late but you know there was this big computing platform shift in the early loss to mobile market like he missed out on it and he wanted to be early to the next computer shift and on the one hand I would say that's pretty smart on the other hand it might say well you're living your fear of missing out guide you too much but but the most important hand I would say oh man if this book is it is still clutching the flag in the whole new platform what is that mean for us given what we know about Facebook and and some of the stuff that I am covered in my book about people scary in oculus have anything proprietary that Facebook wanted. it's a great question because the answer is not really I think so it's been around since the sixties and a lot of the stuff that you know the patents have have laughed so wasn't so much like there is you know the secret formula they said they couldn't they almost you know only oculus could put out except that you know a big part of this business even though it's not only a hardware business selling headset so it was really their software prowess and having people like Michael a brash and John Carmack who are legends in the video game space but it wasn't surprising price to pay for a company with with with not much I.

Holiday's voice was sounding fragile and warn the toll of a life marked by hardship and addiction. Although the more energetic sound of her earlier records is muted here, holiday still delivers wise and moving performances in this collection of emotional, jazz tunes, many of the songs here became synonymous with her unique sound and persona. Here's colleen. Billie holiday remains one of the greatest jazz, voices of all time and is still easily recognizable to music fans from all generations. She's got them. The musicians and clubs of New York City were integral to the development of jazz in the nineteen forties. Bebop was born in the Big Apple with artists like Charlie Parker bologna, smoke and Dizzy, Gillespie. The nineteen fifties saw the development of hard bop with Sonny Rollins and our Blakey the cool jazz of miles Davis and later, the free jazz of Ornette Coleman, and later John Coltrane explored in downtown, Manhattan venues, like the five spot.

So instead, she brought jazz to the mainstream by performing it a major concert venue Carnegie Hall in nineteen fifty six. Nothing. On nothing. She wants said of her style.
