We recently traveled to New Orleans during St. Joseph's Day. You can view some images of altars in churches and cultural centers:
Plaza d'Italia in New Orleans
Italian American Cultural Center
Our Lady of Guadalupe Church
St. Louis Cathedral
Center of Jesus the Lord
Center of Jesus the Lord decorated for St Joseph's Day
Additional information will be provided soon. We have two upcoming research trips to Louisiana - one to New Orleans to conduct interviews with people we met regarding their traditions, and another to Marsh Island to conduct a survey of prehistoric coastal environments and meassure Gulf currents as Spanish explorers may have experienced them.
We are also seeking a translator who is fluent in Vietnamese to volunteer time for a series of iinterviews we plan to conduct with traditional Vietnamese community members who live east of New Orleans.
