Why Do We We Exist?
Red Feather was founded in 1995 by Robert Young, after he read about American Indian Elders freezing to death due to severely inadequate housing/no heat. After galvanizing support from his friends and family,Young traveled to Pine Ridge, where he and several other volunteers built a home for Lakota elder Katherine Red Feather. Our work continues today in her honor, with the belief that healthy homes are the foundation for healthy families and communities.
American Indian Housing Crisis
Red Feather envisions a world where safe, affordable homes are available to all. Our mission is to partner with American Indian nations to develop and implement sustainable solutions to the housing needs within their communities.
