UHN Men's Day Scheduled October 25th

Posted by United Houma Nation on Sunday, August 31, 2014

Over the last several months I have been sharing with you all my intentions to plan and coordinate a tribal men's retreat.  I am excited and pleased to invite our tribal men to participate in a day of brotherhood and celebration on Saturday, October 25, 2014.  I will be hosting this day filled with traditional outdoor activities at my home in Houma.  

Activities will include stickball, blow gun, hatchet throwing, archery, shooting and so much more.  We do not expect everyone attending to know how or be experts at any of the activities.  In fact, many of us will be learning side-by-side.  This event is for UHN tribal men and boys.  As Houma men we have always been providers for our families.  So many of us learned from our fathers and grandfathers how to live off the land.  On the 25th, I hope we can come together and celebrate this tradition and ensure our children continue to learn these skills.  A gathering of tribal women will prepare an honoring lunch for those participating.  There is no fee or cost to attend.

If you are interested in attending, please contact me at thomas.dardar@unitedhoumanation.org to RSVP.  Yakoke et bien merci in advance for helping preserve our traditions.
