It is with much joy and excitement that the United Houma Nation Tribal Council is able to share the launch of the L'Crevisse Project, which is the construction of a UHN Cultural Center and French Immersion School. This multi-million dollar complex has been in the planning process for nearly 5 years and thanks to our partners at the Foundation de France we are able to share the architectural drawings prepared by renowned French architect Rudy Ricciotti. ..
With the assistance of USDA funding, the UHN will be offering small business development services during September. We are offering 2 layers of assistance: ..
The United Houma is currently assessing the needs of tribal citizens after the recent flooding in Louisiana. Tribal members are encouraged to fill out the form below and once supplies become available we will be setting up distribution sites in the affected areas. ..
As the rains begin to subside, UHN leaders and staff are beginning to hear from our tribal citizens in the affected areas of their losses. First and foremost we are relieved to hear that our citizens are safe; however, their homes, vehicles and personal belongings are not fairing as well. ..
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. ..

The scholarship award, which is facilitated through the Louisiana Governor's Office of Indian Affairs is intended to award supplemental monies that would be sent directly to the college/university/institute of higher learning of eligible American Indian students who are enrolled citizens of one of twelve Louisiana tribes or groups - of which the UHN is one. ..
