Natural Villages ( ) is seeking your support for the construction of a demonstration “Cob” house in the community of Wounded Knee on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota June 20th through September 8th, 2006. “There is limited space for those interested in learning, camping and building. Camping conditions are primitive. Any body and age can participate safely with fun, playful earth building.” If you’re interested in volunteering or would like to contribute to this project please contact Johanna Perry Cougar ([email protected]).
