While the housing crisis on Pine Ridge Indian Reservation is well known, an overarching strategy is still lacking and available housing resources barely accommodate the population growth. If the population of the reservation is equally spread across the available housing units, it averages 11 people per household. Chris Morrison explains,
“Many people apply for housing and are on waiting lists for five or six years. In the meantime, they just stay with family.”
The 30 homes in the Eagle Nest Housing Development only meet a small fraction of the reservation's housing needs.
“It makes you wish you had more than 30 homes to offer, but we feel that it is critical that we help in any capacity we can,”
says Ms. Brunsch.
