News regarding Natchez Nation Council and EMMH, Inc. Board meeting(s) can be found right here in a short-report; minutes copies at the tribal office.  Current Notes (March, 2023) 

We continue to update records.  Come to the office and volunteer, your help is needed and requested.

Brad Sams was confirmed as Seond Chief. 

All-out fundraising activities and grantwriting are approved toward increasing budget(s).  We will continue all programs, projects activities.  EMMH Corporate Articles and bylaws were amended in March 2018 to include projects with "all indigenous nations."  Use of the ancient logo was also approved.  It is the "2 Bird" design at the top of each of our website pages.

Medicine Springs Ceremonial Ground is slated to start activities when land is obtained.  Although they can have annual grants, there will be need for help with the many things necessary for the ground; to find various things. All previous members of Medicine Springs are asked to update their address and phone information with the ground by contacting the tribal office or Medicine Springs Cunv/Chief, Mark Six.  Stay tuned.

Now is the time to get involved with Natchez Nation toward the great things that are being proposed or are already in action. Working TOGETHER in consensus, with family and humility is the key toward both preservation and progress.  Please contact your principal clan mothers or the tribal office with your good ideas.  We are still working on language and economic development grants.  Add your ideas.

Alfreda Doonkeen Woodward Confirmed Natchez Principal Clan Mother

Natchez Nation confirmed Alfreda Doonkeen Woodward as one of our Four Principal Clan Mothers at a recent Special Council/Call Meeting. Traditionally the four Primary/Principal Clan Mothers are the "voices of the people." They serve as your primary connection to the National Council and as keepers of the law and traditions. Alfreda is the daughter of Principal Clan Mother, Eula Doonkeen, whose photo is on this page, above. Her family has a history of involvement in serving the needs of tribal citizens and working with us toward increased daily use of the Natchez Language. To put it bluntly, Alfreda is the embodiment of dedication to family and culture and we value her input and service. See our Constitution for particulars. Her family is known for their direct involvement in tribal affairs that have helped maintain our Nation and others. Getting word to her enables every Natchez (LvtvseTvm Nvce) to contribute to the workings of the entire Nation. She serves on the Council of the Natchez Nation with the Principal Chief, Second Chief the rest of the Uvcenv Kwalneeshu Tenvwete, the 4 Principal Clan Mothers.

One of our most important tasks is that our people know and use our language.  We post some of the files from our several trips to the University of Oklahoma Breath of Life language workshops in a download format.  We will always have the alphabet and words or sentences to work on.  Other language files can be obtained by contacting the tribal office and are sent by email, but may not be in our own alphabet.  We have a language introduction booklet to common words, phrases and sentences. Email the tribal office if you'd like one or several. They are free; you only pay postage.
