A new way of life is coming to Pine Ridge through the efforts of the Thunder Valley Regenerative Community Development and the Native American Sustainable Housing Initiative or NASHI.

According to Nick Tilsen, Thunder Valley Development Corporation executive director, the Pine Ridge Reservation needs close to 4,000 homes. Families routinely house as many as 17 people in substandard homes that are often in dilapidated condition.

NASHI’s mission is to improve housing on tribal lands. Learn more by watching the video below.
