Avoyel-Taensa Tribe understands the need to work together with
the community. That is why our tribe is setting up more programs
right now to accommodate both tribal and community members of all
are being made for field trips to such locations as Poverty Point
(which happens to contain some of the largest prehistoric earth
works in North America) as well as many other sites of interest.
Soon persons will be able to come and take part in our tribal
Indian culture classes as well as arts and crafts. Sports
participation will also be open to the community as well as our
tribal members and may come as a volunteer or a sponsor, i.e.
baseball, basketball, etc.
Citizens: Programs for the elderly are also under way to
include, visits to shut-ins and provide assistance where possible.
Raisers: Of course these programs do not fund or run
themselves. Therefore, from time to time we hold fund raisers to
help raise money to help these programs continue along. We
can always use community and tribal member involvement to help out
as needed. Volunteers are always needed as hosts or helpers to
serve in such functions as our car wash, garage sale, raffle
ticket sales, BBQ Lunch sales, Fish Fry sales, etc.
Invitation: Persons wanting to volunteer their time or
resources with any of these programs can contact our office at
(318) 240-8424, any assistance would be greatly appreciated by our
tribe and our community as well, thanks.
