Indigenous Peoples day is almost over, but it’s not too late to show respect to the people whose land was stolen during the colonization of the Americas, and celebrate the communities they have today. Sicangu Lakota artist Frank Waln shared a video for his track “Good Way,” which features Gunner Jules and Rollie Raps. The three grew up together on the Rosebud Reservation.

In the video, the three artists walk around a sunny field, shoot hoops, and just hang out sporting outfits that shows off their native pride. “Indigenous people are often portrayed as less than human in western media,” Waln explained to Splinter. “‘Good Way’ is about us, as Lakota men, laughing, smiling and enjoying life together, being human beings.”

To close out your Indigenous Peoples day watch the idyllic video above, and never forget that we’re all living on indigenous land.
