This website reflects the personal views of O’Neil Darden Jr. The views expressed here do not constitute the official views of the Chitimacha Tribe of Louisiana or the Chitimacha Tribal Council.
The site is dedicated to informing you the tribal membership about the senseless and egregious situation that has plagued me and my family, the families of fellow tribal members and you the general membership since January 2016.
First, I would like to thank all you that have provided encouragement and support to me and my family. It is with your thoughts and prayers that we have been able to get this far.
In Revelations 21:5 the Lord says “Behold, I am making all things new.”
I truly believe that is what 2017 has in store for us. A senior tribal member gave me the gift of renewed faith this past summer and since then, I believe the Lord has allowed me to go through this situation, so that I can serve a greater purpose. I believe that greater purpose is to bring about change and a new beginning for our tribe.
The following pages on this site is my commitment to you and the tribe to be open and transparent and present the facts regarding the bonus situation.
I heard a statement this week that I feel was very profound, “A mind is like a parachute it only works if it is open.”
