    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 continue to be 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 4, 2017.  ..

    Hurricane season has been especially active lately. As we watch Hurricane Irma's unpredictable path, we are asking all Tribal Citizens to please update their contact information, as we attempt to get a read in regards to what our tribal citizens might need if an emergency evacuation were to happen. Unfortunately, UHN tribal resources are limited and we are unable to provide as much support as we would hope. However, with more information we are able to advocate better on your behalf and share your needs with potential supporters and funders.  We feel it is very important to stay connected and found that in past storms email and cell phone contacts were the most effective channels used for us to stay connected to citizens in regards to recovery and supply distribution. ..
