  • Coushattas, Israel establish friendship ties

    By Melinda Deslatte

    The Coushatta Tribe proclaimed its friendship with Israel in a ceremony-- marking the expected start of a relationship with the Mideast state as the Louisiana tribe seeks to extend beyond gambling ventures with Israeli help into new businesses.

    The event, colorfully highlighted by a traditional “stomp” dance, marked the first time a Native American tribe has signed an “affirmation of friendship” with the State of Israel, said Asher Yarden, Israel’s consul general based in Houston.
