Puyallup Tribal Council, the Low Income Housing Institute and tribal staff members will hold a ribbon-cutting for the new tiny homes village at 10 a.m. Thursday, March 11.
Because of the pandemic, in-person attendance is limited to invitation-only. Tribal Members and community members are invited to participate virtually by going to https://us02web.zoom.us/j/88911938495
The Puyallup Tribe has partnered with Low Income Housing Institute for the tiny home village, which is called ʔay’gʷasilali, which in English means “Place of Transformation.” It will include up to 30 tiny houses and a community kitchen, hygiene facilities, case management, and 24/7 staffing – all with the goal of providing shelter and support for homeless Tribal Members. Each tiny house is 8 feet by 12 feet, is insulated, and has heat, electricity, and a locking door.
