There are lots of opportunities for tribal citizens and tribal supporters to become involved. First is to volunteer! The UHN has many community events and activities throughout the year that can only be successful with the help of volunteers. In April and May, volunteers are the heart and soul of the UHN’s food booth at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. The work at the fest is the largest fundraiser to support day-to-day operations and critical to the survival of the Tribe. Additionally, volunteers are needed at the annual Elders Fest in November, when tribal elders are honored and supported in a day’s long celebration.
Also get involved in a committee! There are multiple committees that tribal citizens can serve on and help with improving, growing and strengthening tribal services. To apply to be on a committee, please complete the UHN Boards and Committee Application Form below. Also if you are interested in becoming a UHN volunteer, please contact the UHN Office to be added to our database of volunteers. You can complete the below form or call (985)223-3093.
Every tribe establishes their own criteria and process for enrollment of tribal citizens. The United Houma Nation requires all applicants for enrollment to apply formally through the Enrollment Office. Applicants must complete the required forms provided below, submit all required documentation and pay a $5 processing fee to be considered.
PLEASE NOTE: On September 30, 2014, the UHN Tribal Rolls were closed to all applicants over the age of 5. Currently, the UHN Enrollment Office is authorized to ONLY receive and process applications for enrollment from children of already enrolled tribal citizens PRIOR to the child’s 5th birthday. All other applications received will be returned as unable to process.
The staff will process your application to determine if all criteria is satisfied with the Enrollment Board meeting quarterly to review and make final decisions and recommendations regarding applicants.
