    The federal government is responsible for housing on reserve lands. Nice to see a local solution when the feds ignore the issue.

    At least someone cares about this problem.

  6. Exactly. Manufacture the same house to drive the cost down

    If your feeling completely useless, remember there are those who disliked this video. Enjoy your day wherever you are.

  10. Feds are busy filling pockets of spoiled Trudeau. While these folks are changing lives at reserves.

  11. That is a beautiful looking place. I’d buy it.

  12. I want a big house though

  13. Its perfect. They will hotbox the hell out of those houses

    • Must be easy to maintain these tiny homes.
      I wouldn’t mind having one. Houses are so expensive in the big cities now a days.

  14. Great work! Makes perfect sense!

    This is just so nice to see👍

  16. …..and they’ll tear these things apart like the other homes on the reserves that were built with taxpayer $$. Don’t believe me, just live on a reserve for a few weeks.

  18. This is a great idea as long as you can hook up water and electricity. The roof should also be covered with Solor Panels.
