We call for a coming back together and returning to traditional American Indian ways of knowing and doing. The name also suggests a kind of in-gathering and renewal that we believe is necessary that our nation and culture to both survive and prosper.

The purpose of the group is to promote CULTURAL AWARENESS, SERVICE, COMMUNITY ORGANIZING, and EDUCATION in a way that respects traditional knowledge, the breadth of our history and heritage, encourages arts and crafts. We organize regular activities for members and the community.

We acknowledge the Choctaw-Apache Community of Ebarb, Inc. and the Choctaw-Apache tribal council as the governmental entity for the tribal nation to which most of us belong. However, the Ho Minti Society is a Louisiana non-profit organization that operates completely independently from the tribal government. Full membership is open to those eligible for enrollment in the tribe. We also encourage all American Indians and non-Native supporters living in the region to become associate members.
