The work site.

Even though we stayed in Eagle Butte, the actual work site was a small community named Bear Creek. I'll try my best to sum things up, despite it being 3 years ago.
Our group was divided into two work sites. And really they were within walking distance so it was not a big deal. The first house was one that was near completion and was probably going to be finished within the next month. Our main jobs for the week was installing the floor and fascia and end boards along the outside of the house (at least that's all I did on that site).
The second work site was just underway. Throughout the week we had to help with parts of the foundation, installing the floor joists and the sheets of plywood that went into the floor. Of course with all these terms I'm throwing around (possibly incorrectly) are all terms that were new to just about all of us.
Many pictures here are from the park. Which was right next to the community building where we had some local families cook some "indian tacos" for us and where our bathroom stop was. But the park was built for the children in the community, by a boy scout of the community. It was a great reflection of the Native American culture on how its the community, that takes care of each other, and all members are important.
