Description

On reservations, many Native Americans are unemployed because the federal government or the reservation are the only employers. Additionally, many Native Americans do not have access to property ownership because the federal government owns the land that makes up the reservation. Therefore, many people living on reservations are living in poverty. On this service trip, we will be working and living with a Native American tribe on their reservation. The team will build bunk beds, wheelchair ramps, outhouses, or other accommodations. Additionally, we connect with the Oglala Lakota people who live on the reservation as we learn about their livelihood.
