Hurricane Ida Slams PAC

Hurricane Ida's second landfall occurred in our Tribal Territory, bringing a wave of destruction and 150 mph winds.  There is extensive damage to and destruction of homes.  This has been a devastating blow to our Tribal community.  

We will need help in the recovery and restoration process.  We will provide more information on how you can help and what is needed. 


Right now, we need

  • Building Materials including Wood, plywood, wood screws, nails, hammers

  • Fuel

  • Tools

  • Wheelbarrows

  • Rakes

  • Containers to help salvage items from homes

  • Generators

  • Cleaning Supplies

  • Help to remove debris

  • Air Mattresses

  • Storage Sheds

  • Temporary Living Structures


There is no electricity or running water in PAC, and it will take some time to restore services.  Our tribal members also need temporary housing while they repair their lives.
