Advocate Hopes To Alter Reservation Heating Method

Advocate Hopes To Alter Reservation Heating Method
BISMARCK, ND -

American Indian advocate Chase Iron Eyes is launching a program to try to find an alternative to propane-heated homes on the Standing Rock Reservation, where the nationwide propane shortage is hitting particularly hard.

A fundraising program dubbed "Heating the Rez" is being coordinated through www.indiegogo.com. Iron Eyes says the initial goal is to raise $50,000 to fund a pilot project to outfit 20 homes with heat stoves that burn pellets made from natural materials such as wood, cherry pits and grasses.

As many as 5,000 homes on the Dakotas reservation are heated by propane, which many there can no longer afford because of a spike in prices.

Iron Eyes says he hopes a long-term solution is for people on the reservation to grow, produce and manufacture their own heating sources.
