Tammy McGuire and Kylea Smart participated in a government program aimed at training women in carpentry and other trades. With the help of three other Indigenous women—and no prior experience in home building—the group built the two tiny houses in just six months on the Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory in Ontario.
Now known as The Red Cedars Shelter’s tiny houses, the buildings will be used for women in need of transitional housing after leaving the safe house on the Mohawk Nation.
