LEARN MORE ABOUT LOUISIANA'S FASCINATING PEOPLE & HISTORY

LPB Through ShopLPB, you can learn a lot about Louisiana's culture - past and present. At the dawn of the 21st century, there are still pockets of traditional folkways in Louisiana's bayous where alligator grease relieves asthma, a buried potato cures warts, and "smoking a baby" eases the pain of colic. Visit a world where faith healing, herbal remedies and ritual magic are still an everyday occurrence. It follows respected traiteurs (in English, "treaters") as they gather wild teas, brew home-made cough syrup, invoke the saints at their home altars, and most of all, heal the sick. Learn more with Good for What Ails You: Secrets of the Bayou Healers.

In a story that pre-dates America, the multi-cultural Creoles of Cane River, Louisiana see themselves as somewhere between black and white. The Spirit of a Culture: Cane River Creoles recounts the Cane River Creole identity struggle from colonial French Louisiana to today's Creole led multicultural renaissance - against the notion of race as a deciding feature of a population.

Against the Tide: The Story of Cajun People in Louisiana is the epic story of one of the most celebrated and misunderstood ethnic communities in North America. Ravaged by religious wars, French peasant farmers left western France in the 17th century to establish a new homeland in the wilderness of what is today Nova Scotia. After a brutal deportation by the British, the ancestors of Cajun people were able to end their exile and reunite their families in Louisiana.
