Hurricane Katrina Information

On August 29 2005, Hurricane Katrina unleashed its wrath on the home of the Houma Nation.  About four thousand of our tribe's members were directly affected and are now scattered across the US in various shelters.  Lives were lost, livelihoods affected and homes were either damaged or completely destroyed.


If you want to Volunteer or Donate to help out with the hurricane relief effort, contact the Houma Tribal Government at or (985) 475-6640. We will continue to provide more information on the extent of the damage to our various communities and relief efforts in the near future.
