Elmer Bear Eagle is a board member and advisor to the Wounded Knee Building Camp program.

Elmer provides community support while we are in his nation. Noticing the size of our trees, Elmer likes the plains just fine but wants his nation to know that our building programs will sponsor their learning. This is a great opportunity for the kids.

 

 

Roy Kaylor

Roy Kaylor

Roy is an electrical engineer and holds an honorary PhD in engineering from Eurotechnical Reasearch Institute. He attended West Point and Stanford, getting an MS in physical science. He has created breakthrus in solar generated electricity that caused the electric car industry to begin. On his land sits the very showcar, the electric beauty that Roy built and drove in a national science parade with then Governor Jerry Brown. He is known for his switch system technology that was used in the Prius, by Toyota, and sound system technology currently used by Dolby. A designer of power supplies and switch systems, the Voyager space craft currently uses some of Roys invented technology. He designed power supplies that a soldier could repair under rapid fire with a quater and a bullet. Roy is a board member, and owns the local Little Basin Natural Villages day use education properties outright. Roy has also made a rare, unreviewed proving of cold fusion, and can teach this as well as provide proving kits if anyone has an interest. He also provides electric car conversion kits for VW’s.

We are currently seeking a skilled biographer to write Roys Autobiography: The hidden history of electric and solar power in America.

Thank you, Dianne for joining our board, our team, our village.
