UHN Raffle to Raise Funds to Support Cultural Center Project

Posted by United Houma Nation on Thursday, November 16, 2017

The UHN has ongoing efforts to raise funds to advance the L'Crevisse Project, which will be a Cultural Center and French Immersion School for future generations of UHN youth. The L’Crevisse is focused on creating a home for the tribal community, as well as visitors, to better experience and explore the intermingled tribal and French heritage.  The L’Crevisse will be 2 separate but connected components.  The L’Crevisse will also be inclusive of:

*Tribal auditorium
*A tribal restaurant/café
*A tribal museum and gift shop
*Tribal offices  
*Emergency Preparedness Center
*Community meeting rooms

With the preservation of our Houma-French language being of utmost importance, the United Houma Nation’s vision is also to build a French Immersion School. The school will begin with Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten and First Grade. The Tribe’s intentions are to grow an additional grade level per year.  This educational opportunity will be offered to all citizens.
