6 Safe, Eco-Friendly Homes for Pine Ridge Lakota

Your donation buys materials to construct secure, sustainable housing for and by Lakota women and families in Wounded Knee, on the Pine Ridge Reservation, in the US's own Third-World Country. The worst of the flimsy mold-infested toxic shacks are replaced with straw-bale, eco-dome, cob, or palette homes for 6 or more Lakota families this year in this 4-year-old, Lakota-organized project. As tribal youths build the homes, they develop skills in the high-demand building trade -- a double benefit. project reportread updates from the field

Floods swept away homes, livestock, agriculture, roads, bridges, and power, devastating subsistence farming villages in Russia's poorest region. Russian disaster recovery funding is nowhere near sufficient. Global humanitarian aid is their only hope. project reportread updates from the field

This project is to translate & publish manuscripts by indigenous Siberian Altai elders about Altai's intangible culture & sacred knowledge. The spiritual culture of the Altai people is rapidly being lost & with it the cultural identity of the youth. Altai culture is little documented & almost no cultural heritage preservation organizations work there. Publication & translation of these manuscripts will help preserve this world heritage material & raise awareness for the threatened Altai culture project reportread updates from the field
