Housing Summit at Pine Ridge

Housing and Urban Development officials and Native American tribal leaders are launching a project to build and renovate housing on tribal lands. The "Pine Ridge Building Summit II" will take place at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota and will result in 300 new or rehabilitated homes by the year 2000.

The Oglala Lakota Tribe and its partners are preparing for a seven-day build, July 30 through August 7. More than 1,000 volunteers will be recruited to help construct and rehabilitate the homes. The goal of the program is to help more Native Americans become homeowners.
