Chief Tusquahoma Chapter
Located in West Monroe, LA
Chapter Meetings- 2nd Thursday of most months
Meeting Time- 5:30pm
The Chief Tusquahoma Chapter was organized February 2, 1950. The name of Chief Tusquahoma was chosen because deeds on file in the Ouachita Parish Court house show that as early as 1820 Chief Tusquahoma sold land to the settlers in this section. It was given to him as a Spanish land grant. The earliest recorded histories of the Ouachita Valley Country reveals that the settlement and vast territorial holding of this tribe was near West Monroe. This settlement known as Indian Village, is in existence today.
The Chief Tusquahoma Chapter is a service driven chapter. Members host a variety of programs for veterans in the West Monroe area. Examples include:
Louisiana Honor Medal ceremonies for veterans
Wreaths Across America at Kilpatrick's Serenity Gardens
Send boxes to soldiers with the Blue Star Mothers
Members celebrate Constitution Week by ringing bells and passing out copies of the Constitution to students.
This chapter enjoys getting together for fellowship and fun activities too! Members got together for a night of patriotic painting!
