Taking Shelter from the Earth

Again, Green Gangsta (I'm gonna drop a whole manifesto one of these days), Original People ARE addressing environmental concerns outside of the hippie-esque super left can't we all just get along model. Their view points are rooted in indigenous pre-colonial, pre-imperialistic, pre-slavery, pre-genocidal, etc. concepts. With al of that said let's take a moment to meditate on the life of Iranian-American Nader Khalili.

"Nader Khalili, California architect/author is the world renowned Iranian-American Earth Architecture teacher and innovator of the Geltaftan Earth-and-Fire System known as Ceramic Houses, and of the Superblock construction system. Khalili received his philosophy and architectural education in Iran, Turkey, and the United States."

He recently returned to the essence. You can read more about him and his work here. Make the time to learn more about him and his work.
