Building on the Reservation: Housing as a Form of Sovereignty
There is a critical need for housing on the Cheyenne River Reservation in South Dakota. There is a shortage of affordable, sustainable and culturally appropriate homes, and a lack of job force training and financial literacy. Architect Annie Coombs, AIA will discuss how the YMCA of the Seven Council Fires' Tiny Home Community will empower residents with resources to live independently, fostering workforce readiness and supporting spiritual and mental healing to build a more resilient community and equitable society.
