The Red Shirts cleared the right side of White Sage Long House to prepare it for the pouring of a concrete floor. When this floor is concreted, the Long House will be ready for the next phases: finish roof, interior walls, new windows, ceiling, and heating/AC unit. When finished, our White Sage Long House will be used as a meeting and gathering area, presentation and learning arena.
On June 24, 2011, our last section of concrete floor was poured. Mark Two Blades Williams, Jimmy Snake Killer Nicholson, and James Coyote Kitchens assisted in spreading and smoothing out the concrete. Now the floor in our long house is finished. The walls and windows will be the next step.
The Long House now has a wall separating the storage area from the meeting area. There are electrical outlets in the storage and meeting areas so we don't have to use extension cords all over the place! We have ceiling lights and fans to light and cool our meetings!! We are on our way to transforming the Long House into our future theater, presentation and meeting room, and museum. Special thanks to Dexter Sharp and Mark Williams for buying all the supplies, building the walls, wiring and lighting the areas.
