How Indigenous leaders are changing the future of food

"Food industries being hit hard by COVID. Nineteen and the pandemic is impacting food security in indigenous communities. This week on unreserved from indigenous chefs, cooking of comfort to a community freezer stocked with seal. We're talking with indigenous leaders working to change the future a food. Sean Sherman is an award winning Oglala Lakota Sioux Chef Cookbook, author and indigenous cuisine educator. His culinary work has received international recognition and numerous awards, and if you think that's a mouthful, Sean is about to launch a new project. The indigenous food lab is a vision that he's been working towards for years I reached Sean in Minneapolis. Sean welcome to the show. Hi, thanks for having me. WHAT IS THE INDIGENOUS FOOD LAB WELP? Indigenous food lab is a part of our nonprofit that we created a couple of years ago. Ago Our nonprofit is called natives and a T. I F S Oregon. It's an acronym for North American traditional indigenous foods systems, and what indigenous food lab is a restaurant that we're going to be opening. That's open to the public, but more importantly it's a center for indigenous focused education. We WanNA be offering a lot of curriculum around everything that kind of has to deal with indigenous food systems, so native American agriculture and seed, saving and farming and wild food, nothing, botany and cooking techniques of all kinds. Food preservation and using the food lab itself as a skill building place where people can come and work with us. Because our real goal with indigenous food lab is working with tribal communities. I'm starting in our vicinity and helping them to develop their own indigenous foods entity for their community that could be something like a catering operation or a full-scale restaurant, if they have the means and using herself as support development, so it's going to be a really cool program or really excited to roll it out this year. And why did you want to launch the indigenous food well for me? I grew up on Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, which has always been pretty much the poorest. Poorest area in the United States ever since its inception, and there's a lot of food insecurity around the community that I grew up in a lot of my family still lives today, and I had been a chef in the city of Minneapolis for a few years ever since the very early two thousands and a few years into my chef career, realizing in the culinary world, there was very little representation of indigenous foods out there at all even myself like I could name hundreds of European recipes off the top of my head. I can only name a handful of Lakota recipes that were truly Lakota, and you know not mixed up with like cream of mushroom, soup or something right? Staple I know. But I wanted to really truly understand what my ancestors were eating, and how they were preserving food, and where they were getting their food, and how they were selecting it, and all these questions that I had, and I spend quite a few years researching to figure out how to bring this into the world that we live in today so I just really want to do. Do something that's going to be impactful and resonate Tom with our future generations and food, security and food, sovereignty and health is something that is extremely important for our communities today and we need to do something about it, so I think it's just really necessary today you know to have this. Because every single region and every single city should have food that represents the land. Land, that it sits on to tell that story from the indigenous perspective, and we really needed even more so in our indigenous communities to really bring back a sense of health. You know because we struggle from so much food, insecurity and health issues because of that it's a necessity for a future to create access an end, knowledge and skills around indigenous foods, so we can. Can Pass it to our own children Sean. You mentioned food sovereignty. What is the difference between that and food security? Well food sovereignty in general is really just how a community can really work together to create and to be able to survive with its own food when it comes down to a very simple definition, you know so. It's really focused on food from that community. It's really about preserving and building those skills, pros and saving those skills. It's about understanding. How are indigenous cultures survived working with nature, and not against it, and really understanding the value of knowing all these plants around us for food and medicine, and for crafting and for everything that's been passed down to us, and it's just all this nutrition that comes out of that, but it's also having control over our local food systems, and not having governments tell us as indigenous communities. What we're supposed to eat and where we're supposed to our food from, so we really need control. Control over that, too, because for us as indigenous peoples, our cultural and historical food is, it's part of who we are. It's our identity and we need to preserve that

"Delivered to pine ridge. Reservation comes from the Missouri river. Unlike supplies for white ranchers. Oh, yeah. Anyway, Missouri shitless anyway, as it is over the abortion stuff. So. So we can we can, we can talk about that on the side, they want to, but let me get into this article, but. All right. So Arkell was on here to say up until last year. L Coleman a diminutive softspoken Ogola, sue a grandmother, who lives in one of the hundreds of mobile homes, on the semi arid plains of the pine ridge Indian reservation, lacked running water. Sometimes she received water delivers by truck are the times she drove to a community spigot where she filled buckets, and hauled them in her minivan at home. She laid old water from the buckets for cooking and bathing, I've had to do that. So I know what it's like finally last fall, not for not back. I told you guys couldn't this morning last fall. A not for profit running strong for American Indian youth connected her home to the water pipeline. But this advance happened five years after the federal government had supposedly finished, it's four hundred seventy million share of a pipeline project that many tribal leaders bureaucrats and politicians promised as a solution to chronic water problems on this impoverished reservation in south west South Dakota. Cullman struggle is emblematic of the mixed results from the winning Makoni pipeline, a name, that's incorporated, as Lakota Sioux phrase often translated as water is life, the systems, five thousand miles of underground pipes, serve twelve thousand five hundred square mile area that encompasses one sixth of South Dakota. Although the project and deliver up to twenty million gallons of portable water daily to an estimated fifty two thousand people about one fourth of them, white, and the rest native American. It has been beset by overspending in incompletion the unfinished parts happen to be at the tribal ends of the pipeline and have become or Anita other ample. Right. Exactly. Shocking shock become another example of unfulfilled promises by the federal government to indigenous people. Despite twenty five years of construction that cost nearly a half billion dollars. Only about half of the water deliver by winning Tony system to the pine. River Vatian is derived from the Missouri river. The rest comes from the reservations own wells, which were incorporated in the project to save money. In reservation towns and villages the new pipeline water is fed into old community water systems, some of which date to the nineteen sixties with pipes made of potentially. Hazardous a best is cement, the when you Mitch Onis builders pledged but failed to replace those antiquated systems. Willard Clifford, the Gwala sues tribes water system manager summed up the winning Makoni project unfinished components this way, quote should have been done could have been done. Didn't get done ran out of funding and quote. The road was bud. And lower Sewell of insieme, Lower Brule reservations, which are also part of the service area faced him or struggles, the poverty rate on all three reservations, exceeds ready forty percent. Historically, a dearth of water and related infrastructure have contributed to persistent poverty on the reservations. Meanwhile, the fifteen predominantly white communities and scores of politically connected, white ranchers, who are served by many would Tony's pipeline have reaped. It's full benefits. All of the water flowing through many Joni pipes to those users is from the Missouri river and their pipeline connections are funded by fees. They pay to a not for profit, the west river Lyman Jones rule water system. The annual per capita income is twenty six thousand five hundred twenty six dollars in Jones county, where west river, Lyman Jones is headquartered in Lagat miscuing a goal Egawa Lakota country, where the Oglala Sioux tribe is headquartered. It is nine thousand three hundred thirty four dollars. Tag team this article if you want, I know it's kind of long. Yeah. Why don't we want you take the next section brother?

And then I found out that my mom and dad are divorced at that point. I had no idea what was going on. What have it would the police pick him up for? I don't know irreconcilable differences what the divorce decree said. My mom says we're gonna go down and spend the night at your aunt's house. And then we're gonna go for Dr tomorrow next hour driving through the mountain ranges, and we pulled in Salt Lake City and. When we saw the hotel that my mother was looking for. She pulled into says this is where we live now. I was working in Provo Utah. I got transferred up to Oregon. I was printing Lithography making very good money twenty five bucks an hour and benefits and to meaning of Portland. My sister called me says, you know, that had art attack. I said I heard I didn't get along with him really had no compassion, whether you had a heart attack or not and she says, you know, he might not be around and. When she liked to come home. I said, no, not really I'm making a life out here now, and it took a little bit of etching on her part to say, you know, maybe need to change your mind. And so I did I moved home and probably the best eleven months months at I've ever had in my entire life. With him was was moving back in with this man that I learned to hate over the part thirty seven years in my life. He wasn't a man. A lot of words what I noticed when I was going to the community. Houston trail me. If I stopped in the building, I I noticed that my dad park there across the street for. And we got home. And I said why are you trailing me? I wanna see who you are as a man I thought. Wow, I wish you would have done that one. I was a boy kinda getting hostile feelings. So then we started talking a little bit. I says, you know, if you're gonna see what kind of man, I am than maybe should tell me what kind of man you were because you weren't there for me. He says while I went to boarding school. I didn't know how to be a parent. Let me just have you say if you were to context about what boarding school means people may be listening to this on the east coast and have a very different sort of idea. What boarding school means? Here. What was set up over a century ago? Is that the United States said that our children need to be educated? So they set up schools, and the thing is these schools, they might have thought ABC's, but they didn't teach anything about parenting what they taught you a stand up straight. You know, they cut the hair off. So that they couldn't identify themselves as travel person because her hair's really important to our culture, and they started what captain Pratt said in the Carlisle Indian industrial school is killed Indian saved the man. And my dad he went to boarding school. He said his mom and dad were convinced that it was the right thing because that's what everybody did. And that's what the government told him to do. So they drove him over to boarding school, and they stopped in front of the sidewalk leading to the doorway told him to get out. This is where you go to school then he walked up to that door. His life changed. When I started understanding my anger about him. And he started sharing some of the things I needed to hear that Pryor that helped us to stand the same room together and make comments toward each other. We we did two things we watch them Star Trek love the, and we watched France are richer was we'd get ready turn on TV hit making nouncement and then hit go make popcorn porce milk. We sit down and watch. When he was dying I communicated with him, and we figured out a code. I put my finger in his closed fist. And I'd ask him questions and one for no to forget..

"I was a kid then I didn't quite understand. What was happening? But cares where you're like, you go through these stresses because you don't know what's going to happen to you on a daily basis, it could be playing outside and get shot at or he could just be going to school and get shot at Tim O. So those are those stresses that people here have is that post traumatic stress that was caused by by these effects of dawn to the occupation back in that is. When you keep people Preston depressed, you have complete control over them and assimilation policies were being really pushed hard on people. So but traditional people back, then still believed in writes in like, we still do we still have our treaty rights that treaty that the United States government had side. What us day recognize us as a nation, but a nineteen thirty four that was changed when when congress came up with the Landau Lamin act and then to division of the great Sioux nation into tribes. We aren't tribes were actually one big giant tribal nation. Right now, we're looking at or on termination because right now on this reservation, according to the enrollment, there's only four hundred full bloods, left four hundred full blood Lakota left on this reservation. The blood quantum act is something that we need to get rid of blood. Quantum is European concept of what part this or that. You are in terms of your family tree in that concept, then got sort of transposed onto the native people here. Giving example like a food you take a full blood Lakota from Oglala Sioux tribe, and then you take a full blood Lakota from Rosebud Sioux tribe, they marry and they have kids by blood quantum MAC that child becomes a half breed of either our tribe, but reality that kid is still a full blood because these two full blood Lakota does so. So you get rid of that law. You have a lot more full bloods than what they call a great soon. Asian. We have like some younger people here that are full blooded butter label half or less than half, and those labels then determine in the eyes of the federal government what they're eligible or not eligible for. Yeah. Treaty obligations says that if you're half or less, you don't get the full treaty obligation rights that before will get eventually congress is going to say, hey, where's the full blitz where where are the people that we made these treaties with? We're all here to survive or one nation, one heart one mind one prayer. My name is Bruce Waylon, and I was born here. But these six years ago on the pine ridge agency and. The stories around here. Typical for my age group and are still typical. Now, my dad was an alcoholic. He had a job with the bureau in in fares. He was able to go out and get stinking drunk the night before and somehow he had managed to get up at five o'clock in the morning smoke a cigarette and read his book, and and he'd make us old, and he was able to be functioning drunk and most of his friends the same way anytime I ever saw family or friends. We were we were watching them get drunk. I used to volunteer myself as a five year old and run back and forth to the refrigerator to get their beers for them. Because if I got to open it, the suds that came off means I got the sip it off so here after running back and forth as a five year old back and forth to frigerator. I remember that when I was older some of the people at the parties that were had they would say Brucie was such a good boy, he was so quiet thought back on ice says, you know, what I was probably drunk. As is growing up. I wasn't protected by my dad. There's things that happen to me. That's typical. It's happened. A lot of kids on reservation. You know, you feel kinda malignant because you were used by the people and pretty soon, you kind of have the attitude that that's how my life is kinda useless other than further people's pleasures and one day my by data's land on the couch and a stocking feet that he always does when it gets off from work and rest for awhile..

You still have the same problems. We have you is here but not any greater than anywhere else. We live in the community. I live in the pine ridge village community. I lived there. I've lived there since we've moved here. Like you said he lives in the Allen over in the past Greek community. So if you get to know your community to talk with community is the concept of community policing. But I believe it is human instead of just under law enforcement when we train people are train officers. I always tell people treat them the same way. You wanna be treated if you were in their shoes, and they were the cop come into your you guys are such an interesting duo 'cause you're too like non Lakota guys who both ended up here because you met Lakota gals. And now, you're live here, and this is your home and your world, and and you police streets here, I imagine those that's sort of human community focused attitude is probably especially important when you think about the kind of larger political history of where you are.

"When I was eighteen years old. I lost both of my parents. It was kind of a difficult time for us because we my brothers, and I just stayed Palestine. I just I work there. Seems like most of the people that were around us at time, we're drinking, and so that's what we spend a lot of time doing was drinking. We're able to keep our jobs and stuff like that. But we spend a lot of time drinking and getting into trouble. I'm really glad that I was able to get sober because that's really been like foundation. You know that I've been able to live live by you know, to be sober. And to learn how to cope with life without alcohol and drugs and his life is difficult, and that's really hard. And it's easy. I think to go, and you know to use drugs. One time. There was a. One of our elders porcupine you wanted to revive those all societies as whole. Oh, boy, you're societies. And so he called us all over to his house. They had us all sitting in a circle. Policy young men, and they brought in they brought in some Allders. I think one of them he got up, and he said things are different now than they were back. You know, whenever our ancestors are live. They said our enemies he said back then we knew how to prepare for them. You know, we knew who they were. We knew how to become a warrior. We knew all the weapons and we knew how to confront our enemy. Nowadays, they're different enemies invisible. What he was referring to as invisible as things like alcohol and drugs, and you know, like suicide and all these things are currently impacting us on the reservation. Yeah. And those are enemies now in order to deal with those those situations we had to become spiritual spiritual warriors. To build the deal with those those things. My dad is. In my opinion, the greatest man that I know. My wife is an amazement as well. I cannot fathom how somebody like hurt can get out of the situation that she's ever been in for to come out alive as well as something. We're making. It's kind of like the pudding, but instead of using flour these Tim Salah to sicken it up a bit. You hand grind this. Tim slow with the order in pestle ourselves from. My name is Lisa iron cloud. In Arlo, earn cloud is my. I think it was his long hair initially. I thought he was pretty handsome. Upbringing is completely different from our Lewis. We lived up here in rapid city the majority of my life, but we were always pretty nomadic. We couldn't stay in one spot for too long or homeless. We lived out of the car there were days where would go without eating. You know, it was a lot of struggle. And our knowledge of our culture wasn't priority with us growing up. It was just all about survival. My parents were fluent speakers. But they did it like introduced us to ceremonies so whenever I made my path and met up with this guy with Arlo. I kept thinking that I didn't want my children's that go through what I went through and to have a better understanding of where they came from as Lakota people. So. I try to play catch up and talk to people who are willing to talk to me, which was a struggle in itself. Because you have a lot of people who have knowledge who have. A really great idea of where they come from. And and they know the history, but their willingness to share with. With other Lakota people. I mean, no offense. But you know, a non Lakota they're so willing to share that information. But when it comes to Lakota, it's really difficult. It's almost like territorial. So it was hard. But there were people out there who were willing to sit down with me and work hands on with me. And then teach me the stuff I should have known at this age. And it's not gonna get totally fine. But I I rented through the SIV like this. And then it catches the bigger pieces, which I still use those in soups. Simple has really grown a lot by, you know, just asking for help been hearing the Facebook is very popular in the community, which is kind of an irony that, you know, you've got this sort of modern internet social network keeping up people together for traditional purposes, like my personal Facebook pages just dedicated to food.

"This is all yellow buoy land here. This is my aunt lives across the highway and all that land to the back there. That's it's all our land. So and I have all my family that lives just on the other side and down long creek. And we have Manco has all his horses up here. So. My name's Corey ULA. Boy. It's an old name and around here on the reservation, you can usually tell where somebody's from by their last name. You have an adorable puppy. Yeah. That's jake. That's about his third or fourth name now because he wouldn't answer to anything else. I call him. So but Jake he's been a good dog. He's been is keeps me company. And he's learning local does. Well, he's starting to understand. What? Tell me about your home here. It's not much. It's just low little shed cabin. In. Don't have any lectures city. Don't have any plumbing. I get my water from over at my cousin's place. Keep it over here in buckets. And and you have kerosene lamps and my woodstove so. Slowly, each each blizzard, slowly means to know oneself, and each is to understand oneself. Growing up a lot of my cousins and myself. We went to language, we can we didn't speak the language, and I think I was in my probably twenties when I started to participate in ceremonies, and at that time, they were still a lot of local speakers around. And so I always wanted to. Try to say, oh my prayers Lakota. That's that was the first thing. I wanted to pray. In at that time in the nineties. There wasn't a real big excitement or push to learn the language, Mike. Now, this this kind of been a revitalization of language, you see a lot of people, and especially younger people really coming back to the language and pushing themselves but back in the nineties, it was it was tough. I mean, there wasn't really any materials to learn from in. So if you wanted to learn then you had to actually go and talk to people, and I think. That was probably some of the best training. I guess in the language because you you'd not only learn words, but you heard stories about the language or you know, you got cutting the background of culturing. If you think about your own life as a story like what do you think the moral of your story is? Well. This guess it's the story of the Chinese farmer shoe. You probably heard there's this Chinese farmer, and he wakes up one morning and his horse ran away. And so all the people in the village, they come up and they say, oh, that's too bad. And he just kind of stands there. And he says, maybe. And the next day the horse returns and with seven of wild horses all the people in the village come up, and they say, oh, that's great. And he just stands there. And he says, maybe. The next day. His son goes out and tries to break when those wild horses in the ends up getting thrown bricks league. All the people all too bad stands there. And he says maybe the next day some of the people army come around looking for the men to conscription into the army, and they pass on his son because he has grow can leak. All the people come up and say, oh, that's great. And he says, maybe. And sold like, the the whole meaning of that is you can never tell what the outcome of something positive. You can never tell if it's going to be good or bad. You can ever tell what what is the outcome of something that bad. To me that's life. I mean, that's my life because of had ups and downs. But from some of my downs, and I've had I've met other people. I had new experiences, and you know, and some from some of the things that brought me joy. Then you know, it was the opposite. And I think that that's kind of sums up the reservation to think a lot of local people we take the hard times because we always know that something good can come of it. And even when it's something happy like, we're always thinking, you know, well, something down the road. And so I mean, it's just life have to live it. You've

Pine ridge Indian reservation prisoner of war camp number three forty four. I don't think knowledge the state of South Dakota because it's legal. About ten years ago. I started getting into fine arts and start learning about ledger. Art history of ledge are originated early reservation time period or tribal artists. You know, we're limited to art materials. And there was a lot of ledger books. You know, accounting books from government agencies trading pools and other things on the reservation. So a lot of them were commissioned by military officers to do drawings on these ledgers. So a lot of them preserve their own histories and tribal histories, and so that's that's where I am using my own process. Yep. These ledgers they're sort of administrative sheets of paper that have been used and kind of cast aside by whoever was running quote unquote, the reservation, and then the native Americans on the reservation would get them into their hands and use them as canvases for their own work. Absolutely. Yeah. All of these lines, and these letters these numbers, and they all represent economy numbers to me really kinda reclaiming that paper, this is what's local culture represents and the medium, it's like watercolor or real thin paints. So you can see the image that you put on there. But behind it is the ghost image of that economic document that it's been painted on job in adroit on paper. And then I just painted with watercolor and it does allow for transparent quote paint. And let's the original letters numbers come through the art and really becomes a part. The artwork of the statement that it's making just paint a picture with words as you have with watercolors about what we're looking here. Painted on a ledger from Pennington county, South Dakota dated eighteen ninety nine this county was established on stolen Indian treaty land. Just this year Pennington county awarded a mining company. The use of a million gallons of water from rapid creek, which is a very sacred to our people water source. So when they did that really violated, not only our treaty, but violated grandmother earth. And so I did this piece to kinda protests that and it's called the water protectors camp on on rapid creek. So you know, you got the black hills in the background, and you got the water running in front in the foreground hair with the reflection of the moon in the water. Hey, you get the blues golds in there. And it's all in the background done over. A canvas that's this Fisher, South Dakota document, historic document right there. And so from a perspective of Oglala male. You know, seeing my people suffer for decades now and not anything being done. I realize it's time for us to step up. I've learned a lot, and I've been giving back to the people to my people in one of the things I've done is to help organize the look to artisans, and what we really represent is a group of people empowering ourselves with art. And with our culture that we can share with people, and you know, really bring some sort of economic development on the reservation that's just been forgotten and that's never been meant to succeed or develop. So we're going to do it ourselves..

"From the pine ridge reservation in softy KOTA. It's one neighborhood everybody story. But it's everybody's story out of the blocks. My Lakota name is we have caught caught. Hey, you Naci. And when you translate that in English. It's I stand with the feather. Equal is very sacred to us certain our culture, the men hold eagle feather. But I was given this name. I STAN with a feather because of the path I'm walking, and my name is Tricia tebow's I've been in politics since nineteen eight I say got elected as tribal secretary. And then I ran for vice president vice president and president positions are were always held by men siren when Iran I lost by hundred fifty votes, but that didn't stop me. I tried again. And then that's when I got in. I got more votes than the two candidates ran for president. And so that showed me that, you know, women can hold men's positions. I was told by elderly that our society is male dominant in you're gonna have a hard time. And I explained to him that I didn't want to say. Women are better than men. I want us to work together to balance out how we're going to work for our people and how we're going to make sure their futures intact. We really never had a good relationship with the state of South Dakota one governor at one point would tell the tourists not to come under as avaition because they're gonna get robbed. They're going to get beat up. And so that would keep the tourists money with the state instead of you know, are part of the stick we we should all work together. And so when I got in a state Senator, I think that I opened their eyes to the native American tribes of softy quota, and we are just like them we have needs to and we can work together. You were the first female native American Representative in the state Senate in South Dakota. Then you became president of the tribal council here at pine ridge. Then you took a break from politics. Yeah. Yes. That break was necessary because my husband Kimia. You know when he passed away I went into depression. I just more or less stay to myself, and it's been five years, but I'm still grieving, but not as much so and and relies in when people poach me to run this time. It was a for reason. The people needed me. Little bit more about that. You people started clamoring for you to get back into politics. Tell me what's gone into that decision. And why you feel like you need to do. Our government isn't helping us suicide Jorgen alcohol abuse loud of this is within our nation now. And how do we address it tribal governments not China dress it and I loved the people, and I will do anything to help. So it's hard. You're on the reservation. It's not like on the outside world, but we can help ourselves we can help each other and seeing this beautiful scenery all the trees and rolling hills and the flat part of it. It's ours. It's ours. You know, it's always been is if you look at the research on eighteen fifty one and eighteen sixty treaties, you'll see how large our land base was and tell the federal government slowly dwindling down to where we're on this reservation, fifty by one hundred miles. But yet we survived or survive. It no matter what they did to us holiday. Put us on his reservation. We're still surviving. Saturdays. Always our biggest we expect to have a thousand answers out there. I think we have close to twenty drum groups that are set up here. And you're the organizational mastermind behind all of it.

"They could go into the employees owned construction company, which is also working back. Here are reservation. I hope like one day a day where there's no more trailers. There's this. These houses are even better houses with everybody living what homeless people or anything like that. See C O'Brien from future head of us in undervalues eating. Listeners will be able to hear your feet going through some seriously squishy, mud as we walking around, and it's been pretty soggy out here, you bet so October kind of transition out here on the northern plains from maybe one hundred twenty degrees summer to eventually will get to literally twenty below zero here, and these houses are good to go and all those different temperatures. They are they've been wow. Designed and attack the first time in this tribal nation community where families in community got to pick and choose what type of housing opportunity we wanted. Typically, historically, it's just been cookie cutter opportunity from HUD that maybe design houses for the south. Maybe for Florida Louisiana somewhere down that way. But cookie cutter it up here to the northern plains where they were inadequate for the climate. That's here in the extremes that we have and again, everything here does have solar on top. So we are working towards our renewable energy goals in our intention of that at the end of the day, all the energy, we use in thirty four acres will be created an thirty acres. It's really about meeting a prayer halfway, you know, could wait forever for cliff Emna honor legal obligations, but we'd still be waiting. Just like, my father waited and his grandfather waited and they've been waiting forever. This is the way to kind of hold on SAM's feet to the fire and say, you gotta meet us halfway because now we have a real family in a real housing opportunity. So how do we make the dots? Meet the stars align for families living out here to meet these opportunities. So it's about empowering community people to do this versus monopolies or corporations or tribal or state governments when people actually put their minds to it. They can do anything. So I think that's what I learned by just being part of watching the community developing the way that it has..

I have heard some people say because there is young people, you know, under late teens that do this to almost like a right of passage, but the soul chill needs to our p we would notice me dance. It would be beautiful. We would hear people say I'm scared to go home. I'm scared to go back to what's out there because those same social problems existed. So we thought as spiritual leaders my friends who helped me we sat back in. What could we do more? What could we do more to help our people, and we decided to start this nonprofit? You know, we had wildlife ideas, what we wanted to do in some of those. I guess we weren't afraid to dream. We were afraid to dream, and I look out here.

We have twenty one single family homes going some in construction and some are actually occupied now within the last couple months by family. So they have closed on her home loans and moved in. Right now, we can see seven completed homes and a quota sect that set up in a half's horseshoe typesetting. And that's traditionally the hierarchy of how we used to camp for it's very culturally appropriate. It doesn't have your your parallel streets. Like your average American apple pie.
