This skateboard painted by Douglas Miles Sr. (San Carlos Apache/Akimel O’odham), founder of Apache Skateboards in San Carlos Ariz., is featured in the new Walt Disney World Epcot Center exhibition, Creating Tradition. The exhibit title appropriately describes several of our articles, describing how new circumstances renew traditions, or old memories shed light on and inspire the present.
