From Chris Cornelius:
"With this housing prototype I am exploring all the ways that the HUD house has failed Indigenous people. I am doing this by telling the audience everything my house on the Reservation didn’t have.

My HUD house didn’t have…
A porch
A garage
A place for a fire
A view of the sky
A good connection to the Earth
A place to study/read/draw
A good way to get water off the roof
Any regard for the sun/moon
Space for my non-human relatives"
