Our Pride and Joy ~ Native Shelters


Here are the long awaited photos of our favorite spots, both built entirely by hand in the traditional way, by the Thursday Pioneers, ages 9-12. Granted, the shelters are snow-capped, but isn’t that a testimony?

Here is the Wikiup, complete with stone wall foundation, lashed poles, and goldenrod thatching. Inside is a stone lined fire pit for heat and cooking. A peace flag hangs in celebration of it’s completion.

Below is the log cabin. Inside there is a stone and mortar firplace with chimney, and on the side is their handbuilt balcony. Something to be very proud of!
