Butte Indian Cultural Day

By: Belinda Brooks

Saturday, July 20th, Butte Indians gathered at Council Chief Brad Desadier’s home outside of Montgomery, LA, in Natchitoches Parish to hold their 2019 Summer Cultural Day. Members enjoyed creating Native American crafts and learning of historical Native American tradition. Houma Indians, Bryant Billoxi, his mother, Melanie, and son, Payton, attended the event as guests speakers and teachers. Much thanks and appreciation go out to them for their guidance and instruction. Special thanks to the Bonnett family from Oak Grove, West Carroll Parish, LA, for their donations of food, time and efforts. Additionally, coordinators of the event, the Bane family (Richard, Linda, Merissa) are to be commended for the many hours of preparation to make the day such a success. Thanks, Richard, for taking charge of the delicious hot dog lunch! Thanks to Brad Desadier for the great venue and all the work that went into it to prepare for our guests. And, thanks to all the workers and family who attended! It was a great day!!! bb
