Lakota housing wins GlobalGiving.UK honors

A huge thank you for your generosity for this important project!

Our first news is that our initiative to build sustainable house in Wounded Knee, Pine Ridge Lakota Reservation, South Dakota was selected as a top-ten entry in the GlobalGiving.UK "Celebrate Innovation" contest in May. Our project will therefore be featured on GG.UK's home page.

Our second big news is that project leader Christinia Eala will arrive today in Wounded Knee to supervise the pouring of the foundation for the first Eco-dome home, using all volunteer labor. Volunteers will learn valuable construction skills in the process of building urgently needed healthy homes for their community.

At this point, we have many more volunteers than we have building materials to keep them busy. Please continue to  donate generously. This project is paradigm-changing for the Lakota people.
