    We are excited to announce that KUHN 88.9FM will be returning to online streaming beginning Monday, July 25 with Ms. Gloria Fonseca behind the microphone from 7am to noon Monday through Friday.  KUHN is the noncommercial, educational radio station under the umbrella of the United Houma Nation.  Currently its broadcast range is approximately 15 miles in circumference from the Golden Meadow location.  The station serves as a means to educate and inform the tribal community as well as a much needed opportunity to communicate with tribal citizens immediately before and after disasters.  Tribal Councilman, Donny Verdin from Galliano is pleased to see the entire tribal community receive the same opportunity to access the station and sees it as a much needed tool to ensure the community is informed and has a voice.  "Growing programming will take time and the help of many volunteers; however, I am so honored to have Ms. Gloria on staff to mentor and guide us in that process," stated Councilman Verdin. ..

    Halito et Bonjour,
     
    In 2009, the United Houma Nation began its scholarship fund with the goal of promoting higher education amongst tribal members.  Since then, the employees of the United Houma Nation and benefactors have generously given to the Fund through payroll deductions and other means.  It is because of their contributions that the United Houma Nation can provide scholarships to college-bound tribal members. 
     
    It is our hope that these scholarships will be the beginning of a tradition of granting scholarships annually at our awards banquet, and that our fund will grow along with our tribal members' knowledge of their chosen field, the world and their amazing potential. 
     
    If you or someone you know would like to contribute to the United Houma Nation Scholarship Fund or would like to apply for a scholarship, contact the Tribal Administrative Office by calling 985-223-3093. 
    The application deadline is December 1, 2016.  ..

    Many exciting projects under way in the Tribe these days! Renovations at the Daigleville School is being conducted in stages. The first step was stopping the leaking from the roof which was accomplished thanks to the generous donations and fundraising efforts taking place in 2015 for this cause. Our next phase is to conduct the general repair to allow utilities to be reconnected such as water and electricity. This phase will include replacing broken windows, repairing ceiling and flooring caused by years of leaking from the roof, and updating and repairing plumbing and electrical. ..
