A major housing project on the Fort Berthold Reservation is under way.
Tribal and community leaders broke ground during late June for the 200+ homes initiative. Its goal is 210 homes in districts across the reservation.
Tribal Councilman Mervin Packineau said the project is a dream come true for tribal residents who could not afford homes.
Tribal Chairman Marcus Levings said earlier that $9 million in federal stimulus money would be used to improve housing, roads and water systems.
