Our answer and goal is to put in a place a economic development project to provide needed homes and jobs. We are applying for "grants".
The purpose of the "grants" is to start a vocational school for indigenous youth so that they can learn a skill while building homes for those in need.
The homes will be given as "gifts" which means they will be "free" and this is a Lakota tradition that represents the spirituality of the people.
This project also includes the marketing of the homes so as to generate the necessary revenue to continue the building of homes and providing of jobs.
