Natchitoches Folk Festival

The project chronicles the 20-year history of the festival with video and audio tape and photographs. This year's festival theme is "folk traditions in the new millennium." Past years have highlighted the Louisiana cattle and timber industries, hunting and fishing traditions, and ethnic cultures such as Native American, Hispanic, and Creole. Three music stages and additional narrative stages, a material culture area, and a foodways demonstration area provide spaces for entertainment and education.
