STRAW BALeS
The photographs on this page show my on-going volunteer work with the Red Feather Development Group. Red Feather endeavors to implement community-based sustainable housing programs with the Northern Cheyenne Nation of Montana and the Hopi Nation of northern Arizona. As they work towards developing partnerships with the reservation communities, their goal is to annually build a straw bale home within each community via th e participation of tribal members and volunteers such as myself. I have been assisting in the construction phase of the homes built on the Hopi Reservation.
