yUdjEha nAnô sô KAnAnô ~ "We Euchees, we are still Here"
The Euchee(Yuchi) tribal community and council members have been dedicated to the accomplishment and furtherance of the Tribe's long-range goals involving the language, culture, history, genealogies and ultimately federal acknowledgment.
It is increasingly important to our survival as Euchee (Yuchi) people that we to sustain our identity as Euchee (Yuchi) people by supporting our people’s customs and annual ceremonies. At the same time it becomes an important need to develop and implement long-term strategies for our overall social and economic development of the tribe, and a need to promote our well-being, health, culture and self-sufficiency.
Pursuing the primary goal of achieving federal acknowledgment as a Tribe, would allow our eligibility for federal funds to pursue opportunities to enhance tribal development.
