The Vision

Some of my goals for this project include (but are not limited to):

1. Profiling and collecting stories from members of Cajun elder communities.

2. Profiling folks of any age that are taking part in preserving/continuing Cajun culture. (examples may include: historians, students studying Cajun dialect, musicians, dancers, farmers/hunters, food-lovers, healers, cultural preservationists, small business owners…etc.)

3.  Collecting a wide array of recipes, songs, traditions, and rituals that are specifically and/or uniquely Cajun and/or Cajun-influenced.

4.  Compiling images of family, events, and life that illustrates Cajun culture visually.

5.  Eventually, I hope to publish a book consisting of photographs and stories portraying Cajun identity and how it lives on.

If you have something to share, I would love to hear about it!

  1. so beautiful and real an intention!

    I always love roots that hold to the earth and sustain ongoing life, and expression….

    “deep” is a word that comes so naturally encountering your work Lisa…

    also “illumination”

    I’m looking forward to the book!

    Love, Alice
