At Lands End - Iti Houma details the immediate and long standing issues of The United Houma Nation, who live in south Louisiana on the edge of the gulf. In 2005 when hurricanes Katrina and Rita devastated their communities, no federal aid was provided to them. This brought to light the serious consequences of not being a federally recognized tribe. For decades, their issues have been ignored, dismissed and denied. After a century of land thefts by politicians, land speculators, fur interest and oil companies, the Houma find themselves in a precarious position atop fast disappearing wetlands. Written by
At Land's End focuses on the intricate and sacred interrelationship between the Houma indigenous people and the earth.
