Louisiana Culture

When Americans say they are proud of their heritage what is the earliest event they are proud of?

Just wondered where in time american national pride start and what the associated event was: Development of American Indian culture, Spanish colonies in Pacific, French colonies in Louisiana, British colonies in Jamestown, Landing of the Pilgrim fathers, the Boston Tea Party, the war and./or declaration of Independence, the winning of the west, the abolition of slavery, the 2 world wars, putting a man on the moon. You choose.

I think we are proud of most of this. The history we are taught in school usually makes it sound as if America "started" with Jamestown, so I guess that is where most of our national pride starts. This probably varies for different people, however. For example, I feel that winning our independence is when our nation started, though I am proud of most of those events, especially the abolition of slavery.
As for Americans who are proud of their heritage, I think everyone should be proud of their heritage. Every country in the world has some amazing things in their history, and no one is better than any other.

Is there still French culture in Louisiana, or Illinois?

Check the ALLIANCE FRANCAISE and see for yourself how well the French culture is still represented.

What’s the Southeastern Louisiana culture like?

Around Hammond area. Sorry I had to post here, I got smarta** remarks in the general post.

I went there. It was pretty fun. Lots of nice and rude people. The professors are good. It was actually pretty easy for a lot of my classes. The dorms are pretty new and some of the buildings are pretty new and nice. Of course, since this is the country, most of these students smoke weed a lot for fun, which I did not enjoy so I left. I prefer the big cities and clubbing. You often see crazy driving and people very high. The crime rate on campus was very high. It is just a very small rural area.

Texas, Louisiana, or Kentucky, and why?

My top picks:

1. TEXAS. My adopted home. Great genuine people, diversity in cultures and geography, Texas pride, the most beautiful women I’ve ever seen (and some of the nicest I’ve met!) There are mesas, sand dunes, canyons, deserts, plains, prairies, forests, swamps, marshes, beaches all in the same state. No income tax!

2. Louisiana, my native home. I love my family there, and it is a culture and region distinctly its own (even if it does have an idiot for a governor and NOLA’s mayor is also an idiot.) Friendly folks, beautiful in a unique and mysterious way, a very enchanting culture that keeps one lured in. It won’t leave me!

I can’t say I like:
3. Kentucky. Lived there, it’s more raaayed-neeeyck than many places. Rude and cliquish natives, clerks at Wal-Mart and Kroger tend to be b*tchy, east Ky. is depressing, very little to do, some of the rudest clients I still deal with in my job come from KY. At least it has nice farms.

1. Louisiana. Its my native home also
2. Texas. I’ve been transplanted to Houston, and it’s really nice here.

Don’t know nuthin about Kentucky.
