We, the tribal members gather with the leader and council of the Butte Tribe of Bayou Bourbeaux to embody the universal mission of all indigenous people and honor our forefathers.
We are called to protect our indigenous way of life that is vital to our existence. We will respect, protect and nurture our environment, land and waterways. As a tribe we will continue to be a positive factor and influence in our community while staying true to our heritage.
We are challenged to pass to our youth the same survival skills, knowledge and history as it was passed to us by our elders for generations.
