The Smithsonian’s Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation, USA
Skateboarding and Levitt at the Falls will collaborate to create a one-of-a-kind “Innoskate” festival for the Oglala Lakota Nation in Pine Ridge, South Dakota, July 5, and Sioux Falls, South Dakota, July 7–9. The Innoskate festival brings skateboarding and local communities together in a dynamic exploration of invention, creativity, fun and freedom of expression.

The Levitt Shell, centrally located to downtown Sioux Falls in Falls Park, and the Wounded
Knee Four Directions Toby Eagle Bull Memorial Skatepark in Pine Ridge, will provide dynamic
backdrops for the 2022 Innoskate festival. Discussions and live concerts featuring the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra ensemble and other national and local artists will examine the deep connections between music, skateboarding, creativity and innovation. In addition, professional and Olympic skateboarders, inventors, scientists, artists and local community leaders will engage audiences through a variety of demonstrations, conversations and hands-on activities that explore the impact of skateboarding innovations in American culture. Leading figures will discuss skateboarding technology, skateboarding in the Native American community at Pine Ridge, issues of diversity and inclusion, skateboarding’s role in promoting physical and mental health, and nurturing the growth of the skate community in Sioux Falls.
