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. ..
For the safety of our staff and due to potential harm of Tropical Storm Cindy, the UHN will close our offices tomorrow. Essential personnel may be in and out to assess needs; however, offices will not be open for regular business. ..
