Chief Tusquahoma Chapter, NSDAR

Located in West Monroe, Louisiana
Chapter Meetings - Second Thursday of most months
Meeting Time - 5:30 p.m.

The Chief Tusquahoma Chapter, NSDAR, was organized on 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 reveal that the settlement and vast territorial holding of this tribe were 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 U.S. Constitution to students.

This chapter enjoys getting together for fellowship and fun activities too! Members got together for a night of patriotic painting!
