Has anyone ever heard of the Canary Island descendants called Los Isleños in Louisiana?

I’m a Canary Island descendant of Louisiana and I was just curious if anyone ever heard of us or our culture. Dime la verdad. ~ Viva Los Isleños en Luisiana!

You have a fascinating heritage and culture. The islenos of St. Bernard Parrish can trace their roots in Louisiana back to the original Spaniards who came to Louisiana and before that, Tenerife and the Canary Islands. The Canary Islands were the first place colonized by the Spanish Empire in the 1300s.

Unfortunately, many families were affected by Hurricane Katrina,
as well as your Los Islenos of the Canary Islands Museum.

I thought you and others might like this website.

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.

Can anyone from South Louisiana tell me how to make a gumbo with roux that you buy in a jar?

I am going to attempt to cook a duck, hen, and sausage gumbo for the first time and I’m not really sure how to do it. I’ve been looking for recipes online but all of them include how to make the roux from scratch. I just wanted to use Kary’s Dark Roux. Can anyone tell me how to make the gumbo with the Kary’s roux? Thanks.

All you have to do is put your jar roux in the pan first and start with you ingredients. Usually I make it from scratch, but you can put it in the pan and add the onions, bell pepper, celery and garlic. Sauté until the onions become translucent and the vegetables are tender. Usually we have beef cubes in ours to add flavor. But to answer your question just start out with it in the pan and heat it and go from there.

Places to hold baby shower (Louisiana residents only please)?

I am planning a baby shower! I’m hoping to find a nice place within metairie, kenner, or new orleans to hold it. I really just want a place with a room to hold up to 50 guests, and a place which allows me to control the decorating and the food (i don’t like paying ridiculous amounts of money to eat the same kind of food I could cook and bring!).

If you know of any places that would be good to contact, please let me know! As of right now, budget is not an issue.

Every large hotel and many smaller hotels offer meeting/banquet space for rent. There are also stand-alone options like the Jefferson-Orleans (though their minimum is 150 guests): http://jeffersonorleans.com/

You might also consider holding the shower at the Zoo or at City Park, both of which have meeting/banquet facilities, a family-friendly environment, and free parking.
