"We are extremely excited and honored to be a part of this important U.S. trade mission. During the past several years the Tribe has developed a strong government-to-government relationship with the State of Israel and we look forward to exploring to how we might expand our already fruitful trade ties with this world economic power," said Coushatta Member of Council David Sickey, who will be representing the Tribe on the trade mission trip. "Our tribal land holdings are located near the heart of oil and gas country in Louisiana and we continue to explore ways to diversify our investment portfolio, so it makes sense to examine potential opportunities within the oil and gas industry."
