United Houma Nation Petition for Federal Recognition

I am sending this message about the United Houma Nation, Louisiana's largest Indian tribe. The Houma reside along Louisiana's Gulf Coast; accordingly, Louisiana's wetlands are vital to the tribe's culture.

The BP spill has completely devastated the Houma Indians. However, BP denied the Houma's claim because the tribe is not federally recognized.

Accordingly, the United Houma Nation is participating in President Obama's petition program. If the tribe can collect 25,000 signatures in 30 days, the petition will be passed through the proper legislative channels. The deadline for signature collection is December 1.

The petition is posted at this link: http://wh.gov/b2P

The petition is hosted on the Whitehouse.gov website and does require registration to vote. However I feel the effort is worth it because of the cause.

Will the success of this petition guarantee federal recognition for the United Houma Nation, or will it just start the process of someone looking at the claim?

It is the first step in the process. So it would be to get someone to look at the claim and submit it to Congress.
