Houma woman of vision

Cheers and JeersBrenda Dardar-Robichaux, the principal chief of the United Houma Nation, recently received an award for empowering women from the national Ms. Foundation.

Dardar-Robichaux traveled to New York City and received the award May 21 in honor of her work as chief and for helping out so much after the 2005 hurricanes.

To give you an idea of the prestige carried with the Woman of Vision Award, past recipients included: Marlo Thomas, Gloria Steinem, Erin Brokovich and Hillary Clinton.

Everyone in this region should be proud that one of our own has been so honored by such a prominent organization.
