I Should Have Never Fell In Love

Wayne Toups sings at Rox a song seldom played on radio, cant understand why, you listen to the words, it is a beautiful song that was writen by (a very young)Travis Thibodeaux. Both are artist’s from South Louisiana. This was filmed by my cell phone but still sounds great. Two good artists one touching love song if ever there was one, this is the ONE!

What Indian Reservation welcome visitors as tourists ,that are not to far from Louisiana?

Not all Indian Resevations welcome visitors and I want to go to a reservation on my vacation and learn something of their culture.I’m driving so I would prefer to be closer to Louisiana. I’ve been to Cherokee N. Carolina and really enjoyed the set up there. someone took us around and showed us around and explained thing as we went along. I would like to learn about the other nations as well. I have tried searching and am not too good at it, so I am at a loss. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank You

Try the Matta’poni Indian Reservation in King William County, Virginia. The Shaman is John Sun Eagle and his Wife Gentlewind. They are a lovely couple and they welcome all without making reservations..(small joke) but, seriously, they are great people! Check out the Mattaponi Reservation online, go to any search engine, yahoo, google, and you will find their site describing their reservation, history, ect..

The Chief is Chief Webster Little Eagle. We use to go every weekend to see them. They usually have other people there from all over the world. It is great, we are originally from new york city, and we have met people on his reservation from Ireland, France, Spain, Peru, England, it’s amazing how many connections you make from people that are interested in the Native American Indian Culture.

Try also yahoo’s search, type in John and Sharon Sun Eagle on Mattaponi Indian Reservation and see if they have another site up. They also sponsor kids from other Reservations.

If you ever really want to travel the distance, try heading toward the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota during the Summer time or during the "Gathering of the Nations" Pow Wow, all full bloods participate in that pow wow, it is beyond amazing!!

The Indians at Mattaponi will give you more information concerning other reservations you may visit and attend their pow wows. usually their schedules are online..just type in indian pow wows and the state you would like to visit.

I hope this info helps you out some.
Good luck on your next trip!

feel free to ask me about more info regarding the Res.

GRITtv: Courtney Young: BP Threatens Louisiana Culture

We may now have reached a period of national and global fatigue over the havoc wreaked by the spill. But as someone from Louisiana, I can attest that the disaster is very much pulsating through the daily lives of millions of people in the area. Though Louisiana is not the only place affected, it was certainly one of the most hardest hit by the disaster. Even after the hole is plugged, the damage done will last for decades, generations. A complete way of life, culture is under attack and it’s vital that we, as a nation, do not lose our sense of commitment to one of the most vital cultural traditions in the United States.

It sounds like Senator Craig is going to resign. What about William Jefferson of Louisiana?

Come on Pelosi – you and your "culture of corruption". You hypocrite – let us see your party do the right thing and demand Jefferson’s resignation.

Jefferson actualy was asked to resign, but had refused to step down. In his case, the legal system should decide what should be done about his alleged wrongdoings. Now, speaking of Louisiana politicians that should follow Craig’s lead….

Would it be difficult for a black woman to live in Spain?

I plan on studying abroad (in Barcelona) over the summer to learn Spanish. Now, my knowledge of the language is rather pathetic, but I figured that if I’m thrown into the culture, it’ll be a lot easier to learn than in a classroom in New Orleans, Louisiana. Is there a high chance that I may not feel welcomed because I’m black and because I don’t know Spanish?

No, you’ll love studying in Spain, their is a lot of black people from all corners of the globe living in Spain. Outside the United States their is no color segregation or skin color issues. That’s an American thing, were all people outside the USA, not skin colors.

Also, almost everyone speaks English in Spain, so don’t waste your money on Spanish translation books.

Marion County, Florida Real Estate on the Rise

One of the fastest growing counties in the nation, Marion County Florida is quickly becoming a viable investment option for those looking for an alternative to costly, crowded major Florida cities. With less than 70,000 residents, the county has nearly quadrupled to a population of 250,000. For the past few years the county has consistently ranked as one of the three fastest growing areas in the nation while still maintaining a diverse community where country life still dominates some areas. Comprised of five different vastly different cities, Marion County boasts a well-preserved history coupled with the vitality of a major metropolis.

Even with its continuous growth, Marion County remains affordable. Modern single-family new homes are priced from $120,000 up, while brand new apartment complexes offer monthly rates starting at just $570/ month. Local developers have caught onto the recent trend of building gated communities, but, like other Marion County real estate, home prices in these luxury communities remain affordable. In fact, in 2000 the National Association of Realtors named Marion County’s Ocala as having the third most affordable housing in the nation.

Ocala, the seat of county government, is by far the largest city within the county and was recently named one of the top 50 small metropolitan areas in the country by Inc. Magazine. Ocala also boasts the second highest real estate appreciation rate in the nation at 25.9%, just behind the recovering Baton Rouge, Louisiana. But the region is not shaping up to be an industrial, urban smog kingdom; the air quality (91.2%) is 20 percentage points higher than the average of CNN’s top ten places to live. And the city is surrounded by historic districts, a national forest, and Florida’s second largest artesian spring.

Among the many nature-based attractions is Marion County’s equestrian industry. In 1999 the U.S. Department of Agriculture named Marion County the “Horse Capital of the World” due to its number of horses in residence exceeding everywhere else in the country and praised its near 50 different breeds. Equestrian enthusiasts can seek employment in the county’s massive thoroughbred industry that employs 29,000 Marion County residents. However, if you keep you with the times and modern culture interests you, the technology industry is also thriving. And the construction industry is one of the quickest in the state, issuing over 200 building permits each month. The new industries mark significant progress from an economy based solely on agriculture just thirty years ago.

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.
