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 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 twelve Louisiana tribes or groups - of which the UHN is one. ..

Please remember the UHN Wellness Center is open every Tuesday from 3:00 pm to 5:30 pm for all tribal citizens and their spouses.

From Saturday afternoon until Friday, a group of 10 tribal women will be exploring as a group the historical sites and areas of significance for the UHN over the last 300+ years from Angola, Louisiana to Bayou Terrebonne. As a group they will be connecting to our tribal roots while as individuals they will be exploring what does it mean to be a healthy Houma woman. Please see the daily account of the events and travels of these ladies as shared by Lanor Curole. ..
