The awards night that was scheduled for April 30 at TCMS has been cancelled. This is due to a death of a district employee. The district will be assisting with the wake that night. Thank you for your understanding.
We launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for LEE and I wanted to share it with you! Check out the video where Chloé talks about the story, how we went about casting locals, and what she ultimately wants the film to be.
You can also "like" us on our Facebook page where you can follow our progress toward production.
Thanks for all of your help along the way!

Dear Pilot Project partners:
As the Dakota Housing Needs Assessment Pilot Project finishes its initial Housing Unit Mapping and Verification field operation, project coordinators and field staff will quickly complete the 24-hour Housing Inventory Count and Point-In-Time Count of Homeless Persons on each participating reservation during the last week of January then prepare to launch the door-to-door Household Survey field operation by February 4, 2013. As a reminder, Research Associates working on the Household Survey will visit a random sample of housing units (between 450 and 800 units per Tribe) to conduct a population and housing needs survey of approximately 30 minutes in length using handheld tablet devices. The project is moving ahead smoothly and our hardworking, locally hired Research Associates (field staff) have made us all proud.
I have attached to this email a few informative documents and promotional materials, including a Fact Sheet, Flyer, Press Release and Flowchart for the Pilot Project. Please read these items and share them with as many people as you can in order to better inform your tribal members and, as a result, ensure that the Pilot Project achieves a high response rate and collects accurate data.
