Sustainability Thru Built Environments
Renewable Energy Sources
+Music by Dustin Thomas, Supaman, nine.eighty.one and Iron Subject+
Bob shares history how Great Sioux Nation entered into the Treaty of 1868 and discusses Tribal Treaty Rights along the Missouri River.
Some potential solutions for Tribal Economic Development:
-Create local career options for Native youth and families.
-Bring our young veterans home from their military Nation Building missions around the world and allow them to use their nation building skills right here at home.
-Build homes that are prepared to handle the extreme weather we have to deal with.
-Homes that are low cost, low energy, highly efficient and extremely cost effective. Not to mention they have very long lifespans.
-Build passively sustainable community buildings for emergency situations.
-Somewhere for community to gather in times of need.
Story you may not have known:
“In the Bayou, tribal folks are reported to be losing up to 36 football fields of land a day to water.”
“That’s the one place going underwater faster than anywhere on the planet and thats right here in the U.S. We have tribal communities needing to relocate and they want to relocate as communities.”
“If we don’t deal with these problems, or these disasters for the long haul, we really won’t have to worry about the other things. Cuz we will be in tough shape just trying to stay afloat.”
