Amerind: Sustainability Lexicon for Today’s Real Estate Market

Phoenix, AZ – May 19, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — The admonition, “Go west, young man!” was taken to heart by William Shirley Fulton from his Waterbury, Connecticut home and lucrative manufacturing business. 1600 acres sprawling amidst the desolate beauty of Texas Canyon in Cochise County, Arizona was Fulton’s find, becoming home and investment. The Amerind Foundation became the passion of Fulton’s life as he established it in 1937. Fulton’s life and accomplishments are more than his personal and family legacy; they function as a primer on how to survive and thrive in today’s economic domestic climate. The Amerind Foundation in its structure, organization, scope of work and active research and programs well illustrates the vitality of contemporary non-profit practice in America.

Fulton’s life and oeuvre testify to the American predilection for pragmatism and hard work in search of the elusive American dream. Pursuit of that process uncovered for Fulton and those who would carry on his life work study of Americas’ early peoples and literally unearth how they survived in climates which ranged from unforgiving deserts to mountainous or sea-bounded environments from Alaska down to Peru. Through the lens of the Amerind peoples, real estate investors, moguls and developers can examine:

• Urban, mobile and temporary environments
• How to tap indigenous resources to design, build and preserve cultural traditions
• Natural conditions to harness elemental resources, plan homes and community centers, develop irrigation systems, design agricultural and working habitats as signatures to specific peoples

Located just off Interstate 10 between Benson and Willcox in Arizona, The Amerind facility is open year round, Tuesdays through Sundays from 10 AM to 4 PM. Closed Sundays and major holidays, The Amerind welcomes visits, inquiries, donations and memberships. See www.amerind.org; phone: 520-586-3666
