Aircrete Teepee Prototype
The housing crisis on Pine Ridge is real, about 90% of families live in substandard dwellings, most of which would be considered "condemned" outside the reservation. Many families live without heat and rely on a single wood-burning stove inside dilapidated trailer homes without running water and proper plumbing.
In 2019, we completed this 15 ft aircrete teepee prototype to prepare us to build a full-size home on Pine Ridge Reservation. COVID put our full-sized home build on hold but we plan to return to this project once we complete Ghost Dance Project which has been our primary focus since the pandemic.
