    Mark your calendars for May 1st as the entire region participates in a day of charitable giving.  Most people assume that the majority of charitable giving happens among extremely wealthy people; however, nothing could be further from the truth.  Most giving is by everyday people like you and me who give what they can - $10, $20, $50, etc.  Although it may not seem like much, it all adds up. ..

    Many people have seen the beautifully designed American Indian prestige license plate available through the Louisiana Department of Motor Vehicles, but many people do not realize the additional funds collected from the license plate actually funds a statewide scholarship competition for American Indian students pursuing higher education.  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 thirteen Louisiana tribes or groups - of which the United Houma Nation is one. ..

    Another UHN Elder's Fest has gone down in the books.  With 131 tribal elders in attendance ages 55 and up, the hundreds of pounds of groceries, cleaning supplies and prizes were all distributed to the happy audience.  To see a snapshot of the event, see the video below prepared by Janzen Verdin, Media Specialist with Inter-Tribal Council of Louisiana.  A special thanks to all our donors for helping offset the costs - WalMart and South Louisiana Bank.  Additionally a very special THANK YOU to all the volunteers that gave their time, cooking talents and individual donations - we cannot do this without you all! ..

    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.  ..

    For the last 20 years, the United Houma Nation has taken time during the holiday season to say thank you and recognize tribal citizens and our supporters for their hard work and dedication to advancing the UHN and its people.  As usual the awards ceremony will be taking place at the Annual Banquet scheduled for Saturday, December 16th at the Grand Caillou Recreation Center. ..
