Deep links

The exhibition also testifies to the deep ties created by the Amerindians, decimated by the colonists and first to know the servitude and the oppression, with the African-American community. Many fleeing slaves found refuge with the Amerindians in the Bayous. During the second half of the 19th century, the imagination, lifestyles, beliefs and Amerindian costumes became a source of inspiration for the very first Black Indians. These groups of Africans-Americans organized in "tribes" parade in parallel with the official Carnival of New Orleans dominated by the White Community, and from which they are excluded due to segregation.

The costumes, inspired by the Amerindian ceremonial outfits, are made by hand with force pearls, feathers, sequins. They reflect the influences of the many cultures that meet in New Orleans: Cajun, African, Amerindian, Creole, Voodoo. Directly on the costumes, scenes embroidered entirely in pearls represent religious themes or linked to the fight for civil rights.

Trauma Katrina

The tradition has perpetuated until today, even after the Katrina storm which very hardly touched the black population of New Orleans on August 29, 2005.
