The United Houma Nation is composed of very proud and independent people who have close ties to the water and land of their ancestors. The unique history of our people has shaped our tribe today. The culture and way of life are a lifeline to that history.

houma Nation body


The United Houma Nation is governed by an 11 member tribal council elected to serve distinct tribal communities within the 6-parish UHN service area (Terrebonne, Lafourche, Jefferson, St. Mary, Plaquemines and St. Bernard parishes) as well as a Principal Chief elected by the entire Tribe.  The Tribal Council is charged with creating legislative and policy positions for the Tribe as well as interpretations of the Constitution, ordinances and official actions of the Tribe.  The Principal Chief oversees the day-to-day Administrative functions of the Tribe and ensure the actions of the Tribal Council are acted upon as intended as well as chair meetings of the Tribal Council and vote in the event of a tie.  The Tribal Government is ultimately created to establish appropriate checks and balances on behalf of all Tribal citizens.
