Photo of the Week: The new Red Cloud Training Annex is now insulated with eco-friendly cellulose insulation! We had 13 Native American trainees from Cheyenne River and Fort Belknap joined us for a 5-day Cellulose Insulation Training to complete the project.  All the cellulose comes from recycled cardboard from the Pine Ridge Reservation. Great work everyone!
