The Trail of Hope for Indian Housing

The Housing Assistance Council has received the following information from the Trail of Hope for Indian Housing and would like to offer its support for decent, safe affordable housing and increased housing development resources on Native American Lands.

When: April 17, 2013
Where: Union Square, Washington, DC
Details: The Reservation house facade will be erected and displayed for the public from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. The event will include a rally which is tentatively scheduled for midday.

The Trail of Hope House (actually two facades) will be placed at Union Square (3rd St. NW) near the Capitol and the site is open to the public from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. We need everyone to come out to help us show Congress the extreme housing conditions on Northern Plains reservations. Let’s show Congress what “overcrowded Indian housing” looks like on their front doorstep!

Housing on Native American Lands

Over 500 Native American tribes reside in disparate locations across the United States, and Native American lands can be found in all regions of the United States. While geographically diverse, these communities are the product of a common set of historical and political actions. Persistent poverty and inadequate housing conditions are often prevalent on many Native American Lands.
