Training and Building with the Lakota People
Non-Profit Projects Since 2014 EARTHinBLOCKS has partnered with The Humanitarian Project, a non-profit organization, to train Henry Red Cloud and crew to build with compressed earth blocks. The crew has built an office, a residence for the Shields family and is now working on a larger community plan. In 2019 South Dakota was hit by a "climate bomb" superstorm. Torrential rains flooded Pine Ridge; many people lost their homes. When the flooding subsided, Henry went to his office. It was the only structure still intact. He then took a hammer to the blocks closest to the foundation. Although water had been 2-3 feet high inside, the blocks were not damaged. Other buildings on the property suffered major damage and had to be taken down.
