START A PETITION

Focus:Indigenous Rights
Action Request:Visit - online
Location:Louisiana, United States
After doing some more research, I have found that HR 4886 is not the only petition the Houma Nation has going, though it has only one sponser, who has introduced another HR 3671, 104th congress. After reading on June 18th, this again was assigned to subcommittee and on July 17th hearings were held. All that means is that the petition is caught up in subcommittee limbo and until the GPO makes it available we know nothing of any actions taken. Please visit the unitedhoumanations.org  site and show support for this action. These people have been robbed long enough and along with Hurricane Katrina has left many of the Houma homeless, living in camps, taken in by relatives, some still in shelters, many dead. My own sister is one of the many homeless, staying with friends waiting for a FEMA trailer, which I keep trying to tell her is a cruel joke, she believes though in the Governments word is the gold standard. Even if I remind her of "fool's gold" she doggedly hangs onto their words "just a couple weeks". Let's see Katrina destroyed many lives I believe last year around the end of August. I stray again because this is not about just one person this effects over 11,000 peoples, to many of them relatives of mine.
