Indigenous Surfers


 
NAS professor Nick Reo (Anishinaabe) is making a new Indigenous environmental studies documentary called "Local Motions". It is about kaihekengaru (Māori surfers), their unique connections to the ocean, and their responsibilities to care for and protect their coastal homelands. Reo’s film team includes two Dartmouth alumni, Dan “Roche” LaFranier ’17 and Joe Fairbanks ’17. Filming begins in February of 2020.
