“come see the history, culture, & folk traditions of the Houma Tribe”
Los Isleños Heritage and Cultural Society will celebrate its 38th annual Isleño Fiesta March 8 & 9, 2014, on the grounds of Los Isleños Museum Complex, located at 1345–1357 Bayou Road in St. Bernard Village. The Isleños Historic Village, situated to the rear of Los Isleños Museum, will once more be the setting for a series of living history demonstrations featuring folk crafts, historic vernacular lifestyles, and the cultural identity of the Isleño descendant's community in St. Bernard Parish. Representatives of the Houma Nation will also figure prominently in Fiesta 2014, interpreting the history, culture, and folk traditions of the Houma Tribe. Los Isleños Historic Village consists of seven structures. The Coconut Island Barroom, Estopinal House and Kitchen, Esteves House, and Cresap-Caserta House are historic buildings, which were relocated to the museum complex by Los Isleños Society. During the Fiesta, each building and the surrounding grounds will be utilized for displays which will include farming, alligator hunting, trapping, boat building, trawl-making, basket weaving, Teneriffe lace-making, and quilting. The Isleños Center will be the site of interpretive presentations discussing the Isleños' cultural identity, including folk remedies, historic farming, and the history of the Houma Nation.
