Six members of the Hoopa Tribal Civilian Community Corps are staying at the Weed (Calif.) Bunkhouse for the next four months while they do construction work for Siskiyou Habitat for Humanity. The AmeriCorps-affiliated program allows tribal members age 18 to 25 to earn income and college tuition benefits while they work for a year on community projects.
